SAVE the Historic Figueroa-Riverside Bridge and Preserve it for Future Park Use

    1. Petition by

      RAC Design Build | Enrich LA

The communities and neighborhoods along the Los Angeles River in the Northeast of Los Angeles have traditionally had poor access to parks and open space. The Riverside Bridge is an opportunity to immediately transform the bridge span into a park to enjoy recreationally and to connect the Glassell Park and Cypress Park communities to the Greater Los Angeles area. It is also an opportunity for extending the LA River Greenway Trail to Downtown Los Angeles and to Pasadena for bicyclists and pedestrians.

One could hike to Dodger Stadium from Glassell Park. Imagine safely riding a bike from Griffith Park to Downtown Los Angeles Arts District. This can be done! All the LA City Council and Mayor need to do is approve a feasibility study.  The time is now to act and save the Figueroa Bridge from demolition. It is not only an important historic landmark over the Los Angeles River; it is a crossroads for a more walkable and healthier City of Los Angeles.

Sign the petition TODAY and tell Mayor Garcetti,Councilmen Cedillo and O'Farrell that you want to Save the Figueroa-Riverside Bridge. Find more information on the LandBRIDGE concept go to this link.

      I ride my bike home from work twice a week, from North Hollywood to South Pasadena. I ride down the L.A. River Bike Path and over the Figueroa-Riverside Bridge on my route. I think a bridge-park would be a great improvement to my bike ride, to the L. A. River area in general, and to the City of Los Angeles. The historic, architecturaly beautiful bridge should be preserved.
