Bowtie Community Survey
The Bowtie is 18 acres of undeveloped industrial land along the LA River, which will be transformed into a safe, clean, and vibrant State Park, accessible to visitors from across the region.

When complete, the park will provide native habitat to help bring wildlife back to the river. It will include educational opportunities, as well as areas to relax, walk, run, or bike. Your feedback will be used to inform and guide the design of this park — and to advocate for the resources needed to make the park a reality.
This is something I would like to see as part of the Bowtie design:
1. Restoration and enhancement of natural habitat at the Bowtie, along the LA River, including native plants and landscaping that supports restoration of wetlands habitat, to attract birds and wildlife
