LOS ANGELES—The Los Angeles River was rejuvenated once again on Saturday, July 13, when Los Angeles County officials broke new ground for a recreational trail planned along the north bank of the Los Angeles River between Coldwater Canyon Avenue and Fulton Avenue.

 

As part of the Los Angeles River Master Plan, the North Valleyheart Riverwalk will unfurl between the cities of Studio City and Sherman Oaks with the intention “to revitalize approximately ½ mile of previously restricted Los Angeles County Flood Control District right-of-way along the Los Angeles River,” according to a project description provided by the Village Gardeners.

 

The Village Gardeners of the Los Angeles River first proposed the idea in 2008. The all-volunteer, non-profit organization was represented by President Rick Rabins at the groundbreaking, which was also attended by Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky; Yaroslavsky played an instrumental part in the creation of the trail.

 

The recreational trail will also benefit from several enhancements, including improved fencing, native drought-tolerant landscaping, irrigation, and educational and interpretive signage.

 

The estimated $3.6 million project is being paid for by the Los Angeles County and is expected to be completed in February 2014. Public access to the site will be at Ethel Avenue.
