A Walk in the Ballona Wetlands: Ballona Creek, Ballona Network



I had the pleasure yesterday of walking with a group of people, mostly artists, through parts of the Ballona Wetlands. The purpose of our walk was to become informed and inspired to perhaps create artwork for the 2nd Annual Ballona Network Art Auction.

Lucy Blake-Elahi, Jeanette Vosburg, and Rex Frankel (local wetland expert) were there to lead a close up view of the water, plants and birds in the wetlands by Titmouse Park down in Playa del Rey.



I am excited by the idea /proposal/hope of connecting open spaces, wildlife habitat, parks and neighborhoods via walking, biking and non-road public transit such as the potential Ballona Creek greenway to connect from the ocean to Griffith Park and Franklin Canyon Parks.
