This summer we propose to install River Landing, a temporary park that inhabits the concrete channel of the Los Angeles River, making its banks and dry-season waters accessible and universally enjoyable. This park and accessway in Elysian Valley will serve as a precedent for future parks on the 51 miles of river banks, a continuous blank space that is almost as large as New York’s Central Park. The project seeks to address immediate open space shortages and create a platform where the citizens of Los Angeles can develop a relationship with their river and deepen their involvement in the eventual large-scale modification of the river channel.
We need your help to make this happen. Not only do we need your vote, but also your friend's and family's votes. There is an upcoming Facebook / GOOD voting campaign (April 3rd to 17th) and we are looking for "River LAnders" to be our River Landing ambassadors and help spread the word (mostly via Facebook). If you are interested in being a "River LAnder" we would make sure you get to participate in our film shoot and experience our River Landing.
