River Center: Cypress Park Professional Review and Guide
"The Los Angeles River Center and Gardens is the headquarters for many governmental agencies and nonprofits— including FoLAR—who are working on LA River revitalization. The River Center, which features lush landscaping, fountains, and a mini-park, is open every day from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The visitor center—a small river museum featuring dioramas of river flora and fauna and interpretive panels about river history, flooding, and wildlife—is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on state holidays. The walk is largely on city streets from the River Center to two river access points. The walk showcases two very different faces of the river: the all-concrete access ramp at the historic confluence of the LA River and the Arroyo Seco, and the southern tip of the scenic soft-bottom Glendale Narrows."
