Los Angeles River (2019)Los Angeles River (2019)

I recently visited Los Angeles and saw the LA River for the first time. It wasn’t what I expected. It has a concrete bed and, on the day I visited, had very little water. To me it looked like something from a remote area rather than central Los Angeles near City Hall.

The Los Angeles River is long. It flows nearly 51 miles (82 km) from Canoga Park through the San Fernando Valley and downtown Los Angeles to its mouth in Long Beach.

Although I saw a mainly empty river bed, I was told the river can fill quickly when it rains and presents a danger for those who choose to ride a bicycle along the river bed.

This isn’t the LA we see in the movies.
