The River Glen Opportunity Area, one of several Opportunity Areas highlighted in the City's Los Angeles River Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study, envisions naturalization of the LA River's confluence with the Verdugo Wash tributary from the east.
See page 6-14 of the Master Plan.
Sunnynook River Park opened to the public in the summer of 2013.
The park is located along the LA River Bike Path on the west side of the river just north of the Glendale-Hyperion Viaduct.
The Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan envisions connecting river-adjacent open space to the river, as seen here in a rendering of a potential bank modification near the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Chinatown. The existing rail lines are maintained on trestles, and structured terraces enable safe access to the river's bed and habitat.
The Chinatown-Cornfields Opportunity Area is featured beginning on page 6-28.
A restructured Los Angeles River through Studio City, as envisioned in the Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan. A vertical wall remains on one bank, while the other is reconfigured to allow for access and plants.
The Master Plan prioritizes full connection of the bike and pedestrian paths along the LA River's banks.
Modification of the LA River's banks, such as terracing or widening, can allow for increased habitat areas, as proposed by the Los Angeles River Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study.
Multi-purpose ramps can allow access for recreation as well as operations and maintenance.
