Streetsblog TV: Westwood Neighborhood Greenway Groundbreaking

Jonathan Weiss, who has led the efforts for the greenway for years, explains:

Through the enthusiastic support of Councilmember Koretz, the Department of Sanitation Watershed Protection Division, and the Mayor’s office, culverts are being placed under Expo Light Rail so that, when final funding is found, a vestige of Brown Canyon Creek can be reestablished and redirected along both sides of Expo Light Rail line near the Westwood-Rancho Park station.  Part of Mayor Villaraigosa’s 50 Parks Initiative, the Westwood Neighborhood Greenway will be uniquely accessible by rail, bikeway, and walkway to educate the public and students about ocean-friendly water conservation and native gardens.
