Southern Avenue Greenway Description

Open space is precious in South Gate, and the Southern Avenue Greenway—which runs under overhead power lines—provides an off-street walking and biking route, as well as play areas for the community. There are numerous street crossings, so caution is needed at the intersections. Many of the crossings occur far from the corners and can be dangerous if trail users and drivers alike fail to watch for oncoming traffic.

The Southern Avenue Greenway does not yet connect to the Los Angeles River Trail, but a future link would provide South Gate residents with numerous options for both long-distance commuting and recreational trail trips.

Parking and Trail Access

Three small dedicated lots between the trail and Southern Avenue on the path's western end offer 3-hour parking for trail and park users.
