About Us

Save LA River Open Space is committed to protecting the last remaining 16 acres of unprotected open space along the Los Angeles River in the San Fernando Valley.

We are a non-profit, all volunteer organization, allied with the Studio City Residents Association (SCRA). We are working with area leaders and regional organizations to protect the critical open space known as Weddington Golf and Tennis in Studio City in the San Fernando Valley. We have fought for over 13 years to protect this precious property, because we know that once it is lost, it can never be replaced. The Studio City area has over 40,000 residents and has seen traffic and congestion steadily worsen. Preserving green open space, mature trees, clean water and community recreational facilities are far more important than building another condo complex in an already over-built area with very few open space resources.

Our goals for this unique and irreplaceable property on the L.A. River:

  • Permanent preservation for public open space
  •  Protect historical recreational facilities
  • Create natural water quality improvement opportunities
  • Enhance unique L.A. riverfront site
  • Restore natural habitat
  • Provide Los Angeles River and River Trail access
  • Ensure compatibility with L.A. City’s LA River Revitalization Master plan and other regional plans for the L.A. River
