The City has been working on a plan to revitalize the LA River.

Why should you care? The Corralitas Red Car Property and the Semi-Tropic Spiritualists’ Tract are walking distance to the Los Angeles River. Community Residents’ Association for Parks has advocated for improved pedestrian connections between our neighborhood and the river throughout the public scoping process.
