A strategic implementation plan helps groups organize work around a set of shared priorities.
The San Gabriel Valley Greenway Network Strategic Implementation Plan will introduce several recommended types of projects based upon land and watershed access, and community preferences. It will also include a list of shovel-ready projects or segments that meet specific criteria, including connections to existing greenways and bikeways, promoting equitable access to greenspace, and community need.
Additional areas and other less-ready segments will also be identified for communities who want to develop a future greenway project.
A greenway is a pathway or trail that communities can use for biking, walking, and other uses. A greenway network is a group of interconnected greenways that can help connect people and communities.
Here in the San Gabriel Valley, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the Department of Public Works, and community organizations and allies have been working to build a vision of an interconnected greenway network along the rights-of-way along flood channels, washes, and creeks of the watershed of the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo rivers, which traverse the region.
We want to hear from as many community members as possible to ensure that the SGV Greenway Network Plan reflects the needs of the entire community.
You can share your comments here, and sign up to learn more about upcoming events, including community workshops, greenway bike events and other community events, and a mapping survey.
Due to current health restrictions, many events, including community workshops in the spring and early summer of 2021, will be held digitally. Safely distanced, in person walking and biking events along parts of the greenway network may occur during the summer of 2021.
Stay tuned for more information on how to share your ideas.

Any stretches of the San Gabriel Valley watershed which are open to the public remain open, during hours determined by local cities and communities. Please wear a mask and keep a safe distance from people not in your household.
The San Gabriel Valley Greenway Network will create an interconnected route of pathways that can be used by people on bikes, on foot, and in some places by horse. These greenways will connect communities in the San Gabriel Valley and make spaces for people to exercise, enjoy nature, and provide an alternative way for people to travel to work, school and other important destinations.
