Our Story - River LA

Our Story!

We are a nonprofit organization with a mission to ensure the 51 mile Los Angeles River integrates design and infrastructure to bring people, water, and nature together.

We believe in championing river-oriented policy, sustainable public spaces and creating innovative models for community betterment and participation. The goal is to foster job creation, economic development, improved public health, and community revitalization. We advocate for alternative transportation, enhanced public amenities, recreational green space, and programs that are meant to raise awareness of the river as a signature public resource.

We want to create community and economic benefit for all, and as a social enterprise, we bring the know-how to translate good works into good business. As a convener, we bring public, private and philanthropic partners together to enhance the quality of life across our region.


The Los Angeles River is at the heart of a healthy, vibrant and resilient region we all deserve.


We integrate design and infrastructure to bring people, water, and nature together along all 51-miles of the Los Angeles River.



River LA puts the River first.

River LA celebrates the fact that our region thrives when our river thrives.

River LA is inclusive of all the neighborhoods along the river.

Placing the River first redefines our region as known for beaches, nice weather and the Los Angeles River!

We look forward to working with you on #OurRiverLA.
