CLOSE PROJECT INFO

LOS ANGELES RIVER GARDEN PARK

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

Client: Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy

 

Converts a vacant lot in East Los Angeles into a new public park and garden.

 

The design symbolically captures the essence of the Los Angeles River's progress through its watershed - from the upper reaches, through an urban setting, to the river estuary, and out to sea.

 

The park incorporates the use of native plants, permeable paving, storm water retention, energy conservation, bio-swales, and a thematic water feature that uses a sustainable filtration system.

 

Winner of the ASLA Southern California Chapter design award.
