LADWP OPENS OWENS LAKE TRAILS      Nov. 2016 Project wins ASLA - Award of Excellence

Three public trails open providing public access to re-vitalized habitat for wildlife enabling important stopover location for migratory waterfowl and shoreline.

Now open, a massive land art project (by the architectural firm NUVIS and designer, Perry Cardoza) was dedicated on April 29, 2016 and is now open to the Public. Set amid the great expanse of what was once glittering Owens Lake, this monument/park with its central plaza, wavelike land forms and winding pathways will celebrate the long, varied and sometimes bloody history of the region. It's part of a much larger wildlife reclamation and dust mitigation project that is designed to restore portions of the lake and cut down on the alkali-ridden dust storms that blow across its parched surface.
