Eyes on the Street: New East L.A. Rainwater Infiltration Medians
Last weekend, Streetsblog got a chance to check out East L.A.’s rainwater infiltration median parks.
Streetsblog last toured the project – officially called the East Los Angeles Sustainable Median Stormwater Capture Project – back in June 2021, when it was very much a construction site. Construction is done now. The native landscape is in full bloom. Families and individuals are enjoying the welcoming new mini-parks.
The new median landscape is a project of the L.A. County County Department of Public Works, overseen by L.A. County Supervisor Hilda Solis.
Find more recent photos of the East L.A. medians project at today’s Eastsider article.
SBLA San Gabriel Valley coverage, including this article and SGV Connect, is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of downtown L.A.

(For what it’s worth: the East L.A. project isn’t in the SGV proper, but it’s in the Metro SGV Service Council Region, so it’s included in SBLA SGV coverage)
