Reseda Park Improvements Planning and Design. Potential improvements to be evaluated during project planning and design include a riverside
walkway, storm drain diversion for efficient infiltration, low-tech bioswales for stormwatercleansing, efficient irrigation, interpretation of natural resources, and native habitat creation. Sources of stormwater that could be diverted onto the site are a large drain pipe on the eastern
side of te property, surface flows from adjacent streets, and the rainfall that naturally occurs on the site.

Proposition 1 funding to perform project planning and design for a renovation of Reseda Park. Notable aspects of the subject project with respect to the Urban Creeks program are its location directly adjacent to the main channel of the Los Angeles River, the ability to create multiple benefits including recreation, water quality enhancements and native habitat, the location being adjacent to a disadvantaged neighborhood as defined by the CalEnviroScreen mapping tool, and potential connections upstream to the Aliso Confluence Park (recently completed by the Trust for Public Land) and downstream to MRCA's Caballero Creek Park. The site is already publicly owned and improvements can be made to the site without displacing any entrenched uses.
