The beauty of the Los Angeles River through downtown derives not from its natural wonders, but from its urban ones. This walk features four of the more than a dozen prominent historic bridges dating from 1910 to 1932. These bridges are monuments to civic pride, featuring graceful arches and a variety of intricate ornamental details, all demonstrating that public infrastructure can be lasting, beautiful, and functional. Please note that this walk is best enjoyed on weekends, when the weekday truck traffic is absent from this industrial area.
