"The City of South Gate is moving forward with plans to construct a large park adjacent to the Los Angeles River," reports Steven Sharp.

"The Urban Orchard Project, described as a passive recreation area, would span a linear 30-acre site on the River's east bank - running 1.1 miles between Firestone Boulevard in the north and the Rio Hondo Channel in the south," according to Sharp.
