New LA River trail opens in Studio City

A new trail along the L.A. River opened Saturday morning in Studio City.

Lined with thousands of native trees and plants, it is bikeable and walkable — closing one of the L.A. River Trail's many gaps. 
 
The Zev Yaroslavsky L.A. River Greenway Trail runs for approximately half-a-mile from Coldwater Canyon to Whitsett Ave. in the San Fernando Valley. 

L.A. County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl says the trail has another benefit: It will help capture stormwater that can be reused to recharge aquifers.
 
"It's a half-mile of native and drought tolerant landscaping. It's got rest areas and walkways for visitor and also for the surrounding neighborhood," Kuehl tells KPCC.

The trail is part of a larger project to close gaps that prevent residents from walk or bicycling the riverside trail.
