In Wednesday, February 19, we dedicated the Historic Paseo Walkway, the landscaped, block-long pathway between the LA Plaza museum and the historic La Placita Church, extending from Main Street to Spring Street, includes historical signage about the city’s rich past, from the indigenous Gabrielino-Tongva settlers through the years of rule by Spain, Mexico and the United States.
It creates a direct pedestrian pathway stretching approximately four city blocks connecting to Union Station and the new LA Plaza Village residential-retail complex, serving as the city’s first historic pedestrian pathway and linking the city’s primary historic monuments of Ft. Moore, La Placita Church, LA Plaza, Olvera Street and Union Station.
Frances Anderton of KCRW visited the dedication of our Historic Walkway as well. Listen to her informative conversation with Steve Chiotakis on the latest developments.
We also received great broadcast coverage, including ABC7 Eyewitness News, Univision34, CBS2, NBC4 and others.
