It's Los Angeles' biggest park, yet accessing it is not always easy, especially on its eastern side. For over three miles, there is zero pedestrian access to it, much of it thanks to being lined by the 5 and 134 Freeways. Now as part of their L.A. River plan surrounding the Glendale Narrows Riverwalk, the city of Glendale is looking to connect the narrows to the park.

As the third phase of the project, however, the bridge could be sometime away. The first phase will break ground this Summer, according to the Glendale News-Press.
