Since its opening in 2014, consistent public access to this site has been challenging. Clockshop is working with the LA Bureau of Sanitation and local partners to envision the site as a freely accessible outdoor classroom for surrounding schools and a vital greenspace for all.

Former District 1 Councilmember, Ed P. Reyes will welcome guests and provide a brief overview of the Greenway’s history. Join our tour to learn about the Greenway’s design as a stormwater filtration site, and enjoy a family-friendly native paper flower-making workshop with Xochitl Manzanilla and a Danza Azteca presentation by local group Xipe Totec. Shade, tables, and chairs will be provided, and we recommend bringing a blanket to enjoy light refreshments. We encourage dressing for warm weather. This event is free and open to the public.

If you can’t make it but want to describe your vision for the Greenway, you can do so here.

The Ed P. Reyes River Greenway treats runoff water from an area spanning 135 acres, filtering 50,000 cubic feet of water from surrounding businesses, homes, and streets before entering the Los Angeles River. Managed by the LA Bureau of Sanitation, the Greenway functions as a stormwater treatment facility, but is also a much needed open green space in a highly industrial community.

This event is part of Clockshop’s Take Me to Your River: A Cultural Atlas of the LA River.  
Take Me to Your River is a three-year collective history and cultural mapping project aimed at retelling an inclusive history of the Northeast LA neighborhoods that surround the Los Angeles River (Elysian Valley, Atwater Village, Cypress Park, Glassell Park).
