The City of Los Angeles has selected a team led by Gruen Associates to design a 12-mile section of the Los Angeles River Greenway as a part of Frank Gehry’s comprehensive master plan. The design team will also include architects Oyler Wu and landscape firm Mia Lehrer + Associates, who recently won a competition for a new park at First and Broadway in downtown LA. Upon its completion, the greenway will allow residents to walk and bike nearly 30 miles between the neighborhoods of Canoga Park and Elysian Valley.

The greenway design will include a bike path, pedestrian walkways and shading elements, as well as landscaped areas to support habitat and manage stormwater. The project will also complete the existing Los Angeles River Bike Path from the West Valley to Griffith Park.

“The Los Angeles River is a common thread that links us to our history, and connects us to the natural world,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in a press release. “This bikeway will give all Angelenos a new way to experience our city, build accessibility to our revitalized river, and expand green space for families to enjoy.”

The team will now take the next 9 months to complete a detailed feasibility study and hold public forums for community input and review. Construction is expected to be done in several phases, with a yet unspecified completion date.
