Letters: Greening Glendale

February 06, 2013

Re "The very nature of the city," Perspective, Feb. 4

Jessica Garrison's celebration of the transformation of Debs Park northeast of downtown Los Angeles conveyed a joy I too feel when discovering urban respites or helping advance their emergence from neglected spaces.

A similar story is unfolding along Glendale's border with the Los Angeles River, where the city's community services and parks unit teamed up with the nonprofit North East Trees to install a true blight-buster, the recently opened Glendale Narrows Riverwalk Park. When the project is completed, the city's entire river border will feature parkland.

Helping to provide park staff and North East Trees with support and input in the decade it took to move the plan from dream to reality was a blessing worth the wait.
