Heritage Square/Arroyo Gold Line Station

The Heritage Square/ Arroyo Gold Line Station features art by Robert Delgado. Through reliefs and tile designs, the artist incorporates Mesoamerican and contemporary themes.

Artwork includes a piece made of concrete assembled in the image of the Mesoamerican deity Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent. There are also a number of vibrant tiles with old photographs of Los Angeles imbedded on them that adorn the station platform. It's a short walk to restaurants and the Heritage Square Museum.

TRANSIT: The Gold Line runs through East LA, Downtown Los Angeles, Highland Park, and Pasadena. Heritage Square/Arroyo is three stations north of Downtown's Union Station.
