Hollydale Park is located in the City of South Gate along the urban Los Angeles River, which channels untreated runoff directly to coastal ecosystems. This gives the project’s water-management elements the utmost importance.
Bioswale includes: grading and drainage improvements, the purchase and installation of decomposed granite surfacing, native plant landscaping, and interpretive signage.
With Phase Two funding from the California State Coastal Conservancy, and in alignment with the Hollydale 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.
