Culver City Observer -

Bike Path Access To Be Limited


Please be advised that the Bike Path Access Ramp at Duquesne Avenue will be closed on the following days:

March 30 - April 10


April 16 - April 20

(all day)

*Nearby bike path access points are located at Overland Avenue and National Boulevard. The closure will allow for the restoration of the Rivers of the World (ROW) mural located on the ramp.


BACKGROUND-The Rivers of the World mural is located at Duquesne Ave. on the bike path access ramp on the north side of Ballona Creek. In 1998, a competitive grant offered by Los Angeles County (Proposition A Anti-Graffiti Mural Projects) was applied for by the City of Culver City with the support of Ballona Creek Renaissance (BCR). The project was implemented and directed by BCR, endorsed by Culver City Unified School District and completed in 2000 by artists, employing 9 – 12th grade CPHS students, and the talents of community volunteers. The mural has attracted many visitors traveling by bike, walking home from school, or walking to attend cultural or sports events. Over time the mural has sustained graffiti damage, vandalism, and has been in various states of disrepair.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY-Between April 16 – 20, this mural will be restored with the intent of returning the mural to a protected, and near-original state. (Between March 30 and April 10, work at the site will be completed to prepare the wall surface for painting and to repair damaged tiles.) As was the case in 1999-2000, this will be a community based volunteer effort, with assistance from professional artists and support from BCR. Brushes, paint and guidance will be provided. Volunteers need to be of high school age or older.
