LA River Projects


Taylor Yard River Park Project

The City of Los Angeles purchased the Taylor Yard G2 parcel (G2) on March 1, 2017. The nearly 250-acre Taylor Yard complex, of which the G2 is derived, was historically owned by Union Pacific Railroad Company and its predecessors for rail maintenance and fueling. G2 is a Los Angeles River-adjacent, approximately 42-acre property located in the Cypress Park community of Council District 1.

The Taylor Yard River Park Project is Project No. 165 of the City Council-adopted Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan, and described in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles River Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study (also known as the ARBOR or “Area with Restoration Benefits and Opportunities for Revitalization” Study), for which the City is serving as local sponsor. G2 is situated in Reach 6 of the ARBOR Study and is adjacent to a soft-bottomed portion of the Los Angeles River. The site is a brownfield and therefore complicated by legacy contamination, but it offers the first opportunity to provide direct access to the Los Angeles River in historically-underserved communities. Taylor Yard River Park is critical to the fulfillment of the ARBOR Study goals to restore ecosystem values in and along the Los Angeles River.
