Greenway 2020


Greenway 2020 is a campaign led by the L.A. River Revitalization Corporation (LARRC) to create a regional non-motorized transportation corridor from the San Fernando Valley to Long Beach, passing through 13 cities and numerous jurisdictions. The Greenway will enable families to leave their cars at home and enjoy a leisurely walk or bicycle ride along the River with amenities such as parks, cafes, and rentals. Currently, 26 of the 51-mile stretch of the River hold elements of a Greenway.

To support this realization of Greenway 2020, with a particular focus on the Study Area, the following guidelines are essential:

  • Support by the City of Los Angeles in raising funds,

    entitling projects, and permitting demonstration

    projects to connect the River to adjacent communitie
  • Support LARRC's collaboration with other cities,

    agencies, and departments within the County of Los

    Angeles under the vision of this plan and the L.A.

    River Master Plan.
  • Incorporate Greenway 2020 vision into local, state, and

    federal legislation in relevant funding streams, including

    public, philanthropic and corporate platforms.
  • Partner with both public and private organizations to

    address operation and maintenance expenses.
