Project Overview

The Rio Hondo Confluence Area Project, also known as RHCAP, was identified in the 2018 Lower Los Angeles River Revitalization Plan and is located at a key opportunity site along the Lower Los Angeles River. Conceptual development is exploring options to connect communities to the RHCAP and create a key gathering place for Southeast Los Angeles.  

Some of the various features being developed are:

  • Improved multiuse paths and connectivity 
  • Restored habitat and open spaces  
  • Cultural arts center with amphitheater 
  • Vegetated river terraces and modified low flow channel 
  • Multiuse bridge parks to connect communities  

One of the signature features of the RHCAP is to incorporate the cultural identity and history of the southeast Los Angeles County communities into the overall programming and design of the site. A proposed Southeast Los Angeles (SELA) Cultural Center being led by the State of California is envisioned to be a focal point of the site.
