Community Leaders Gather For Dedication Of Bellflower Bike Trail Pedestrian Path

Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe joined community leaders on Monday, November 30 in the City of Bellflower for the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony of the new Bike Trail and Pedestrian Path.

The new 2.3-mile path, which runs along an abandoned rail Right-of-Way from Lakewood Boulevard to Caruthers Park, is now open to walkers and bicycles. Horses and motorized vehicles are not permitted.

The project budget was over $2 million, and Los Angeles County was able to help out with a large portion of that – with $400,000 coming from Proposition A funds and an additional $100,000 coming from Supervisor Knabe’s Competitive Grant Program.

I’m so pleased to have been part of the project that encourages fitness and strengthens the community, said Supervisor Knabe. I want to encourage other cities to add on to it to increase access for bike paths and connectivity with the San Gabriel and Los Angeles River Bike Paths.
