South LA Alleys Being Transformed Into Mini Parks

green alleys south la 2

As far back as 2008, the Trust for Public Land and USC’s Sustainable Cities were talking about turning some of LA’s 900 miles of often-sketchy alleyways into parks and community green space. The Green Alleys Project is anticipated to break ground this year on a pilot program in park-poor South LA that will turn two trashed alleys (one near Main Street between Fifty-Third and Fifty-Fourth, another at Fifty-Second and Avalon Boulevard) into functional community spaces with new lighting, art, native plants, and special light-colored pavement that will catch rainwater, saysWhich Way LA?.
