Elysian Valley: Bridge To Taylor Yard

Photo: Diane Edwardson, January 12, 2012.  Not only is the City looking to purchase the G2 Parcel of Taylor Yard, they're planning a bridge connecting Elysian Valley to Cypress Park.  Photo shot from Elysian Park.  Elysian Valley is to the left of the river, Cypress Park is on the right.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Of course, you'll still have to cross Metrolink tracks and property to get to any existing park, rec center or school on the east side of the river.  Word has it, the bridge is long ago agreed-to mitigation to be paid for by Metrolink for the City allowing their facility to be built so close to homes in Elysian Valley & Cypress Park.  Lesson: if neighbors don't hound developers, things agreed to are forgotten & never get built.
