I think it’s great that Los Angeles is creating a new wetland in south Los Angeles. Part of a 9 acre park, this 4.5 acre wetland will bring much needed green space to a gritty neighborhood sorely lacking in parks of any kind, will process up to 680,000 gallons of storm water each day, and will start the process of bringing wildlife habitat back to the area. This last point is important. The Pacific Flyway is vital for many bird species, but the overdevelopment of California makes it very difficult for many species to survive. 4.5 acres isn’t going to create miracles, but it will bring birds and aquatic species local residents have never seen into the area. There is no down side to a project like this.
