    Franklin/Ivar Park in Los Angeles, CA

    Hollywood Dell Walk

    This loop walk through the Hollywood Dell offers glimpses of old Hollywood as well as abundant greenery and birdsong. Join us on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 10am. All details below. 

    We’ll begin at the Dell's one-year-old pocket park to La Rocha trail, a rare stretch of natural green space located in the hills. The trail had been slated for development of 10 lots, but community members raised awareness and funds to purchase the land. The property is under the conservatorship of the Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority.

    The walk culminates for refreshments and more neighborhood history at the Vedanta Society of Southern California.

    Details:

    Start Location: Franklin/Ivar Park (southeast corner of Franklin and Ivar Avenues)
    Parking:  Vedanta Society of Southern California parking lot, 1946 Vedanta Place
    Distance: about 3 1/2 miles
    Difficulty: moderate—walk includes one fairly steep hill for about 1/4 mile; and about 1/2 mile of dirt trail.
    End Location: Vedanta Society, 1946 Vedanta Place

    World Day of Remembrance 2018

    On Sunday, November 18 at 2pm, Southern California Families for Safe Streets, a project of Los Angeles Walks, will mark International World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

    The group, made up of individuals who lost a loved one in a traffic collision or who survived a serious crash, invite you to join them for a convening to celebrate the lives of those lost on the streets of greater Los Angeles. 

    SoCal Families for Safe Streets invites everyone to participate on November 18, but especially those impacted by dangerous street design and reckless driving in Southern California. The group channels their grief into action, and advocates for smarter street design, slower speeds, and safer behavior -- all in order to prevent other families from experiencing the tremendous loss or life-altering injuries they have. 

    More details to come soon.
