What used to be a seedy, insecure lot has recently been transformed into a half-mile of recreational area on the north bank of the Los Angeles River, newly lined with native California trees and shrubs.

An ornamental fencing depicting scenes from the Los Angeles River fabricated by artist Brett Goldstone delicately encloses this new community treasure.
