Wiseburn Walking Path Completion
The Los Angeles Conservation Corps recently completed the Wiseburn Walking Path project located within the community of Wiseburn, east of the 405 freeway in Hawthorne. The project includes a .7 mile pedestrian path, fitness zone areas, benches, solar powered security lighting, dog waste stations and trash receptacles. Native and drought tolerant trees and plants enhance the path, providing habitat for butterflies and insects, and recreational opportunities and access to green space. In addition, the project reduces ambient temperatures and GHGs, and allows for storm water infiltration. This project mitigates for the environmental impacts caused by the widening of I-405 along Sepulveda Blvd.
The project has strong community support and high usage since its grand opening on September 9.
This project was funded via the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program.
