Los Angeles River
The entire Los Angeles River runs 51 miles through urban Los Angeles (both through several cities and the County of Los Angeles). It flows through a concrete channel on a fixed course, which was built after a series of devastating floods in the early 20th century.
Environmental groups and park advocates support the removal of concrete and restoration of natural vegetation and wildlife. Portions of the river now have earthen bottoms and restored habitat. There is an abundance of fish species, and a large variety of bird species. On July 23, 2013, the non profit group Los Angeles River Revitalization Corporation announced a goal of completing a continuous 51-mile greenway and bike path along the river by the end of the decade.
