SITE: Paula Avenue + Garden Street, Glendale, 91201

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. Benches, seating areas and wide-open paths welcome visitors, as well as a public art installation inspired by stop motion. An ornamental fencing depicting scenes from the Los Angeles River fabricated by artist Brett Goldstone delicately encloses this new community treasure.
