Maywood Riverfront Park
Located at 60th Street and Walker Avenue in a densely-populated part of Maywood, this small park is stone’s throw from the LA River. Efforts are underway to expand the park, and to create a high-quality connection to the river channel. This walk through the Park features an industrial face of the Los Angeles River. There is not much in the way of nature, but there is a stark beauty in the vast concrete channel. While this walk is not recommended to introduce newcomers to the river, it’s important to become familiar with the challenges facing those who would restore the river and bring amenities to under-served areas.
