The Compton Creek Walking Path will provide an aesthetically pleasing and safer alternative for pedestrians and cyclists to navigate between local schools, parks, and shopping or simply offer a place for folks to relax and take a break from urban life by providing an extension of that walking/cycling path which leads to the Compton Bike Trail. This grant will specifically help fund the retaining wall to ensure safe passage for the trail users as well as obtain the permits required from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, waterproof the wall, and related expenditures for the drainage system associated with the wall.
