A plan to beautify a stretch of river stimulated famous by dozens of movies is the springboard for an upsurge of bars, cafe and music venues in Los Angeles Elysian Valley, also called Frogtown
Visitors to Los Angeles would be forgiven for not knowing that the city has a river. For decades the stretching of sun-beaten concrete operating from the Simi Hills to Long Beach has been little more than a glorified cyclone drainage, best-known as a backdrop for dozens of movies, including Grease, Chinatown and Terminator 2. Not for long: $100 m of state funding has just been dedicated to revitalising the LA River, extending the existing bike track to Downtown, improving access and creating a sprawling 51 -mile wildlife habitat.
This is in addition to the city’s acquisition of a 42 -acre parcel of land, a former railway yard due to be converted into grassy wetland, which Michael Atkins of Friends of the Los Angeles River( Folar) tells will be the” greatest park in LA “.
