ELYSIAN VALLEY — It took about 10 years to create but a landscaped median on Riverside Drive between the 5 Freeway and Gail Street was dedicated last week. Residents and 13th District Councilman Mitch O’Farrell were on hand to spread mulch around the plants and trees on what once had been a barren strip of asphalt. The council office worked with the L.A. Conservation Corps to create the median and install the plants and irrigation system.
Still in the works is a “welcome” marker to Elysian Valley.
