Los Angeles Walks promoted the month of “Walktober” with a series of events. Los Angeles Walks joins Santa Monica Walks and Santa Monica Next who are co-hosting an event here in our own fair city.
Beginning at Virginia Park the group will take a walking tour along construction of phase II Expo Line light rail and along Michigan Ave. in the Pico neighborhood where the “Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway Project (MANGo) is proposed. Enjoy hearing about MANGo and a bit of history on the neighborhood which had rail service back in the day, and how the building of the 10 freeway divided not only one of our most diverse neighborhoods but is still a source of disruptive devision in our city today despite it’s benefits.
