Recreation Along the River

John Arroyo's thesis blog,"Culture in Concrete: Art and the Re-imagination of the Los Angeles River as Civic Space," came to our attention because of its relevant featured content based around the L.A. River.

"Envisioning a Surf Lounge on the LA River," was one of many posts made by John. Click to view all entries from "Mental Maps of the L.A. River" or view John's blog.

Stuart’s vision for the LA River doesn’t focus on art or culture, but rather recreation, including boat rental, bike rental, and a fishing pier. My favorite part is the surf lounge on the bottom right. He wrote,

“Surf lounge allows participants to float down the channel head first on a board. Like a snowboard.”

Thanks to John Arroyo and CoLab Radio for sharing the research.
