BIKE PATHS & EQUESTRIAN USE
The relevant City land plans
have identified a potential
equestrian trail along the
northern area of the park and a
bikeway along portions of the
northern border of Debs Park.
The Debs Park Framework Plan
recommends placing these two
uses along the banks of the
Arroyo Seco Flood Control
Channel and/or on the north side
of Griffin Avenue, which is
adjacent to the northern
boundary of Debs Park. This is because the northern edge of the Park consists of mainly
steep slopes that are not suitable for bike/equestrian pathways. Such an alignment would
also be in keeping with existing city policies that recommend maximum use of the banks
of the Arroyo Seco Flood Control Channel and other flood control channels for biking and
equestrian trails. In addition, this recommendation would minimize disturbance to urban
wilderness areas and be most compatible with the Plan's goals.
• Provide for non-motorized bike/equestrian pathways on the Arroyo Seco
Flood Control Channel and/or north side of Griffin Avenue.
• Council Offices and the City Department of Recreation and Parks should
work with City Planning Department to revise and update the Northeastern
Los Angeles Community Plan, the 1979 Community Plan, and appropriate
land use maps to correspond with this document's recommendations on
location of bike and equestrian pathways; thus preventing potential conflict in
authority or misinterpretation of plans.
