Big changes are in the works for the 19-mile stretch of the Los Angeles River between the city of Vernon and the Pacific Ocean.
The long-neglected concrete waterway is often littered with trash. Officials have announced plans to revitalize the lower L.A. River.
“We’ve seen a lot of development along the upper river near Griffith Park, Dodger Stadium, near Chinatown. There has been almost a complete revitalization along that area,” said California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon.
More than 150 projects are in the works, including parks where community residents and visitors can exercise and spend time along the banks of the river.
