Abstract:

In the last decade millions of dollars have been spent on restoring and revitalizing the Los Angeles River and its surroundings. Dozens of parks, miles of bike trails, public art installations and hundreds of trees and plants follow the river as it winds 51 miles through more than 100 communities. Until now no guidebook offered information on the resources along the river. This is the first on-the-ground guide to checking out sites new and old, and getting to know the historic river that runs through greater L.A. The book includes watercolor illustrations as well as maps.--From publisher description.
