Supervisor Yaroslavsky and County Public Works to Break Ground on Valleyheart Riverwalk

 

LOS ANGELES -Construction is set to begin on a $3.5 million plan to convert a half-mile stretch of the Los Angeles River into a lush, drought-tolerant pedestrian greenway. Once completed, the County will have planted 98 new trees and more than 6,000 shrubs along the river.

 

The Los Angeles River North Valleyheart Riverwalk Project will open an area of riverbank that was previously closed to public access and connect it with existing pedestrian walkways along North Valleyheart Ave in Studio City. Unique to this project is a partnership between the County and volunteers from The Village Gardeners of The Los Angeles River, who will maintain the site once it is completed. The Village Gardeners is an all-volunteer, non-profit dedicated to the beautification of the river between Coldwater Canyon Ave. and Fulton Ave.
