Bimini Slough Ecology Park
Location: 184 S. Bimini Place, Los Angeles, CA 90004
The ¼ acre park will provide much needed open green space in Southeast Hollywood and provides stormwater capture opportunities. A 180 foot bio-filtration vegetated swale running across the park provides a system to capture and filter urban runoff that previously flowed untreated directly into a storm drain to the Pacific Ocean. Additionally, the park features recycled broken concrete, permeable surfaces, river rocks and boulders, and low-water using indigenous plants that help filter water-borne pollution and allows rain water to infiltrate into the ground.
