Proposed LA river walk gaining momentum

A new riverwalk along Escondido Creek flood control channel in city of Escondido (a suburb of San Diego) is gaining momentum with April Marshburn, a graduate student of Cal Poly Pomona landscape architecture program was quoted by the North County Times

she was inspired and intrigued this spring when she read about City Councilwoman Olga Diaz’s desire to create a lighted and landscaped river walk out of the flood control channel, which runs 7 miles from the city’s northeast corner at Lake Wohlford Road to its southwest corner at Harmony Grove Road.
Marshburn recently completed a 25-page analysis of options for the flood control channel, which was intended as a precursor to a more comprehensive study that would involve a team of Cal Poly graduate students visiting the city frequently beginning in January.

    Thank you for recognizing the Escondido Creek Greenway project and the article. Just two corrections here: my last name is actually Marshburn–“marsh” as in “wetland”. Also, the project is along the Escondido Creek in the city of Escondido (a suburb of San Diego approx. 100 miles south of Los Angeles.)
    Thanks again.
