Hollydale Park bioswale



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.

Phase One – was completed in 2013

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.

Hollydale Park project was funded by the Coca-Cola Foundation Metropolitan Grants Program.

Hollydale Park Urban Forest



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.
