Thank you for your interest in the Paseo del Río at Taylor Yard Project. At the 100 Acre Partnership, we are excited to share with you information about this collaborative effort between the California State Parks, City of Los Angeles, and the Mountains Recreation Conservation Authority.
Final Proposed Concept Design Video
The Paseo del Río at Taylor Yard is a joint effort of the 100 Acre Partnership (City of Los Angeles, California State Parks and the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority). The Paseo del Rio at Taylor Yard will include a one-mile public use greenway, an entry plaza and a water quality improvement wetland that supports natural habitat. The Paseo del Rio runs along the river's edge on both the G1 and G2 parcels.
The Paseo del Rio at Taylor Yard will provide open space for increased habitat along the Los Angeles River. Some amenities that may be included include trails, native habitat areas, health and wellness activities, gathering spaces, outdoor classrooms, a kayak launch and landing, and scenic overlooks. The Paseo del Río at Taylor Yard will benefit our surrounding communities and region, while increasing access to the Los Angeles River.
