LA Riverfront Greenway Phase II

LA Riverfront Greenway Phase II

The Los Angeles Riverfront Park Phase II converts a maintenance-only access road into a verdant, multipurpose linear park. This half-mile trail provides much-needed river access and recreational opportunities for the community, treats stormwater, improves air quality, increases habitat, and provides a beautiful river edge in what was an unused maintenance corridor. This project has won three awards to date: 2016 Los Angeles Business Council Award of Excellence, 2016 California Trails and Greenways Merit Award for Development, and the 2015 ASCE Metropolitan Los Angeles’ Outstanding Bikeways and Trails Project.
