These changes should be a nice boost to the L.A. River and give everyone an opportunity to finally experience it. I always wanted to after watching Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2 ride his Harley in the L.A. River protecting John Conner after being chased by that other evil Terminator.

There are some significant changes coming to the L.A. River according to Zev Yaroslavsky, LA County Supervisor - 3rd District. On Zev's blog, there was a post on July 13th stating that the Board of Supervisors accepted a $1.97 million state grant to hlep launch construction of the Los Angeles River Headwaters project, which will create more than a mile of recreational trails at the point where the Calabasas and Bell creeks meet near the football field at Canoga Park High School which is expected to be completed in 2013. This can be viewed from Owensmouth near the Topanga Mall.
Also, another change coming to the L.A. River is a pilot non-motorized boating program in the Sepulveda Basin. Here is some more info from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers:
