City officials broke ground Saturday on a new park in Reseda along the Los Angeles River. The ceremony kicked off construction of the 2-acre park, which will include walking and biking paths as well as a greenway, City Councilman Bob Blumenfield, who represents the area, said in a statement.

The park is the latest step in the city’s push to revitalize the banks of the Los Angeles River, Blumenfield said.

“This park will be a home base for us here in the West Valley, a destination for those down river and an integral part of the transformation of the L.A. River,” he said.

The project will replace a vacant lot and will connect to a planned 50-mile network of bike and walking paths along the river.
