Reference Number: 3810P011772

Implemented By: Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority

Objective: acquisition of easement rights over a portion of APN 5442-002-823, project planning and design for permanent and interim improvements for public access and habitat restoration, and implementation of such improvements for the G2 project adjacent to the Los Angeles River, in the amount of $10,000,000, Glassell Park neighborhood, City of Los Angeles. Acquired by the City of Los Angeles in March 2017, the Taylor Yard G2 parcel site ( G2) is a critical site for restoration of the Los Angeles River watershed. The 42-acre property includes nearly one mile of river frontage along the soft-bottom portion of the River. This large site has the potential to treat regional stormwater flows and therefore can impact the long-term water quality of the River. Its proximity to existing open space, recreational resources, and interpretive resources, including Rio de Los Angeles State Park, Elysian Park, riparian habitat in the river itself, numerous parks along the opposite bank of the River, and Los Angeles River High School, means that G2 is a singularly unique opportunity to create a regional multiple-benefit park, enhance habitat connectivity, provide recreation and interpretation, improve the water quality of the Los Angeles River watershed, and promote access to the Los Angeles River.
