City and County to Create River Parks

Who says the city can't work with the county? The L.A. County Public Works department has allocated money to put parks at each of the streets that dead end at the Los Angeles River in Elysian Valley. The County owns the flood control land, and led by Supervisor Gloria Molina, they've consented to develop it in keeping with Elysian Valley's appreciation for the L.A. River. Newell Street, Harwood Street, Shoredale Street, Duvall Street will all see little entryway pocket parks. And many of you have already visited Meadowvale Park, an independent project opened with help from Tree People last year.
