Paseo del Río at Taylor Yard
El concepto Island utiliza la creación de una isla para proporcionar un momento único en el río donde el público puede experimentar el río de cerca. En este concepto, las líneas eléctricas y las torres existentes se reubican en una alineación en el lado este del sitio del Proyecto para permitir la remodelación del borde oeste del sitio. El cauce del río luego se vuelve a formar para crear una isla que separa los flujos del río, imita los procesos geomórficos fluviales de deposición y erosión, y proporciona múltiples capas de hábitat ribereño y de tierras altas de acuerdo con los objetivos del Estudio ARBOR. Las formas y geometrías de este concepto reinterpretan los modos históricos de gestión del río de la Ciudad –canal, puente y un largo paseo– y superponen esas herramientas con un enfoque más poroso y naturalizado. Desde la isla, el sitio se mueve hacia el este como una serie de ecologías contiguas que permiten la combinación de investigación científica, áreas programadas, recreación y hábitat.
The Paseo del Río at Taylor Yard is a joint effort of the 100 Acre Partnership (City of Los Angeles, California State Parks and the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority). The Paseo del Rio at Taylor Yard will include a one-mile public use greenway, an entry plaza and a water quality improvement wetland that supports natural habitat. The Paseo del Rio runs along the river's edge on both the G1 and G2 parcels.
The Paseo del Rio at Taylor Yard will provide open space for increased habitat along the Los Angeles River. Some amenities that may be included include trails, native habitat areas, health and wellness activities, gathering spaces, outdoor classrooms, a kayak launch and landing, and scenic overlooks. The Paseo del Río at Taylor Yard will benefit our surrounding communities and region, while increasing access to the Los Angeles River.
Community Workshop One Summary
We hosted our first community workshop on Saturday, August 13th, 2022 at Rio de los Angeles State Park with over 200 members of the community in attendance. If you were unable to join us, check out the information posterboards here. After Community Workshop One, our team was able to collect nearly 800 community questionnaires.
Community Workshop Two Summary
The feedback received at Community Workshop one and through the questionnaire helped inform the three design options presented at Community Workshop Two in November 2022. To provide ample opportunity for participation, we hosted two meetings for Community Workshop Two, one on the evening of Thursday, November 17th, 2022 and one in the morning of Saturday, November 19th, 2022. Both meetings were hosted at Sotomayor High School. Spanish and Chinese translation services were provided at the meeting on Thursday, November 17th, while the meeting on Saturday, November 19th was hosted in Spanish with English translation being provided.

Virtual Community Workshop Summary
Additionally, we hosted a virtual workshop in the evening on Wednesday, January 18th, 2023 to provide the community an additional opportunity to learn about the Paseo del Río at Taylor Yard and provide their feedback.
