On March 30, the City of Los Angeles will hold an official ceremony to mark the completion of Albion Riverside Park - a new riverside greenspace in Lincoln Heights

Located at the corner of Albion Street and Avenue 17, the six-acre parking features:

  • athletic fields;
  • fitness equipment;
  • walking paths;
  • playgrounds;
  • a picnic area; and
  • a river observation area with a bioswale.

The $44-million project, which broke ground in May 2017, is considered an expansion of the nearby Downey Recreation Center.  The two facilities will be connected by a walkway underneath the Spring Street Bridge.

Albion Riverside Park sits across the river from the Los Angeles State Historic Park, a 32-acre green space which reopened in 2017 following a multi-year restoration.
