LOS ANGELES (September 30, 2020) – The MRCA announced today that it has closed the Los Angeles Recreation Zone for the 2020 season. This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kayaking was not permitted in the two areas of the Recreation Zone. Activities such as fishing, walking, and bird watching were allowed along the river.

The MRCA looks forward to the 2021 Season, which will commence on Memorial Day, 2021.

The Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority is a local public park agency dedicated to the preservation and management of open space, urban parkland, watershed lands, trails, and wildlife habitat.  The MRCA manages more than 75,000 acres of public parkland and provides natural resources and scientific expertise, critical regional planning services, operations, fire prevention and ranger services, as well as education and leadership programs for thousands of youth each year.  It is one of the lead agencies revitalizing the Los Angeles River.
