Rio de Los Angeles State Park

Rio de Los Angeles State Park is a California State Park along the Los Angeles River north of downtown Los Angeles in the neighborhood of Cypress Park. The 247-acre (1.00 km2) park includes restored wetlands featuring native plants as well as sports fields, a children’s playground and a recreation building.[1] Rio de Los Angeles State Park is currently managed in partnership with the City of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation.[2]

The park was built on a brownfield abandoned freight-switching facility called Taylor Yard used by the Union Pacific and later the Southern Pacific railroads from the 1920s until 1985.[2]

Rio de Los Angeles State Park opened on April 21, 2007. It is located at 1900 San Fernando Road, Los Angeles.
