Introduction of Rio de Los Angeles State Park

Rio de Los Angeles State Park and the nearby Los Angeles State Historic Park serve the local communities by offering a one-of-a-kind State Park experience. Despite the fact that Rio de Los Angeles (LA River) State Park is surrounded by industrial and residential areas, restoration of the park’s natural river wetlands provides a serene opportunity for all visitors who enjoy hiking trails, being surrounded by native plants, and viewing returning wildlife. There are also sports fields, a children’s playground, and a recreation building in the park. A site that was once primarily used to repair and maintain railroad cars now allows visitors to restore and replenish their inner needs. Rio de Los Angeles State Park is currently managed in collaboration with the Department of Parks and Recreation of the City of Los Angeles.
