|Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows|
The curve of the River as it leaves the San Fernando Valley and heads toward the center of Los Angeles is called the Glendale Narrows.
A small section has a natural bottom, rather than concrete, and the sweep of the curve, slows the water's flow. Together these aspects create another wildlife oasis.

Come down to the River and see for yourself.
We're headed toward downtown and eventually Long Beach and the sea.
