The new Elysian Valley Bike Path is now open

Last weekend I joined the Elysian Valley community in celebrating the opening of a new bike path along the west bank of the Los Angeles River from Fletcher Drive to Barclay Street. For years, community members have walked along this path and efforts to revitalize the river have made it an increasingly popular place for walkers and runners. Now, cyclists will also be able to enjoy the path with a new smooth surface and LED lights.

Many thanks to the city agencies that worked to bring this project to completion and to the many community organizations that helped to support this exciting addition to the neighborhood.

Bring your bike to Elysian Valley and check it out this weekend!
