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.
