In July 2014, the long-awaited Los Angeles River Headwaters Greenway opened near the Headwaters, where the L.A. River is formed by the confluence of Bell Creek and Calabasas Creek in Canoga Park. One of the 239 projects outlined in the Los Angeles River master plan, the 1.25-mile trail will one day be a part of a continuous path that connects the entire length of the river. At its opening, County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said, "The location is significant. Without starting at the headwaters we can't complete an amenity that would someday cross all 51 miles out to the sea."
