River LA is thrilled to congratulate the City of Los Angeles on its decision to move forward with purchasing the G-2 riverfront parcel at Taylor Yard! This property is imperative to LA River revitalization and is one of the most important components for its urban restoration since it will provide essential green space and critical access to surrounding neighborhoods. The incorporation of the property complements our ongoing efforts to create a contiguous 51 miles of river via programs like Greenway 2020 and the Rio Vista project. Like these programs, G-2 has the potential to become a connective tissue from the middle river to other parts of the River’s reach, bringing us one giant leap closer to our goal of connecting all of the LA River.
We’d like to thank Mayor Garcetti and the City Council for their support, as well as all the river advocates out there, including you! Your efforts made this crucial step possible, and your stewardship going forward will ensure this land’s full potential as an ecological and community benefit is realized. It’s your support and passion that turns these dreams into a reality.
