The Great Wall

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.


Someone should revoke our Valley membership card. We've lived in this part of the city for over 20 years and we've never seen The Great Wall of Los Angeles up close. We've driven past it regularly and spied it from the comfort of our cars but actually walking down the 2700 foot mural? Well, let's just say we're ashamed.

Now, as it nears its 30th anniversary, it needs to be refurbished. SPARC is looking for donations to help sponsor local youth workers to fix up the landmark.
