Hollydale Regional Park
Amigos de los Rios partnered with the City of South Gate to enhance and transform this common Los Angeles River Adjacent Park into a major feature area along the regional greenway network.
The former landscape of grass has been transformed into a native plant landscape to celebrate flora and fauna of our watershed and enhance recreation opportunities for children and families.
The project’s urban forestry will also enhance the park’s recreational value by beautifying public lands, increasing access to outdoor recreation, connecting to regional resources through adjacent bike paths, and restoring native habitat. Phase one of this project was completed in 2013.
Hollydale Park project was funded by the Coca-Cola Foundation Metropolitan Grants Program.
With Phase Two funding from the California State Coastal Conservancy, and in alignment with the Hollydale Regional Park Master Plan, Amigos De Los Rios removed large areas of grass for additional native habitat, constructing additional stormwater infrastructure, and planting more trees throughout the park.
Bioswales were added to many areas of the park to improve includes: grading and drainage improvements, the purchase and installation of decomposed granite surfacing, native plant landscaping, and interpretive signage.
