Project: Confluence Park Improvements Planning

Description: Pre-improvements planning and design at the Confluence Park Phase II project. The project site is an approximately 1 acre parcel owned by the City of Los Angeles located adjacent to the confluence of the Los Angeles River and the Arroyo Seco. Notable aspects of the subject project with respect to the Urban Creeks program are its location adjacent to the River, its potential to one day create multiple benefits including recreation, water quality enhancements, native habitat, the location being in a disadvantaged neighborhood as defined by the CalEnviroScreen mapping tool, and potential connections to the River bike path. Potential improvements to be evaluated during project pre-improvement planning and design include elements related to watershed protection such as stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) for water quality improvement, native drought-tolerant landscaping for shade and habitat creation, efficient irrigation, interpretation of natural resources, and other park amenities. The project will be planned in such a way that future stormwater management components could maximize public benefit and take advantage of the location.
