Tour the Mighty LA River

LA River Tour 

Everyone in Los Angeles has seen the LA River, and has heard that it’s being revitalized. But who knows where it is, exactly–and what 
exactly is happening on its banks?

The Friends of the LA River tours take you to current and planned 
restoration sites. Come walk, drive, and lunch along the LA River, as 
we talk about its central role in the city’s past and the necessity of 
its comeback to LA’s future.
