Parque Dos Rios

Parque Dos Rios is an approximately 7-acre habitat enhancement and rest stop project located along the Lower LA River at the confluence with the Rio Hondo in the City of South Gate. The project creates new upland habitat incorporating native vegetation. Users of the LA River Trail can enjoy a shaded overlook trail rest stop with a custom decorative metal shade structure along with seating and interpretive graphics.

The project is a collaboration between the WCA, the City of South Gate, the Los Angeles County Regional Park and Open Space District, Los Angeles County Flood Control District, the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy, Northeast Trees, and the Conservation Corps of Long Beach which all share goals to provide a place for the community to have access to open space and also improve the quality of the watershed.

Parque Dos Rios is one of the first of several planned projects from the Lower Los Angeles River Revitalization Plan.
