Tour the mighty Los Angeles River!– w/ Friends of the LA River.
Everyone in Los Angeles has seen the LA River, and has heard that it’s being revitalized. But who knows where it is, exactly–and what exactly is happening on its banks? On this carpool tour, we’ll walk and drive along the river, as we talk about its central role in the city’s history and the necessity of the ambitious revitalization to LA’s future.
The Valley tour visits one of the least-known stretches–with stops at the headwaters, the verdant stretch in the Sepulveda Basin, the 1/2-mile-long Great Wall of LA mural and new Tujunga Wash Greenway, and the new park projects through the neighborhoods and film studios in Sherman Oaks and Studio City and beyond. We’ll eat lunch at an excellent Thai noodle shop en route (other options too–or feel free to bring your lunch), and we’ll end with an optional stop at the legendary Cuban bakery Porto’s.
