Culver City Park to Playa Regional Trail Construction Begins this Month
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, notes that construction on Segment 7 of the Park to Playa Regional Trail began on May 7 and will likely continue into July. This segment of the trail travels through Culver City Park and connects the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook Western Gateway with Ballona Creek. The Park to Playa Regional Trail is located within the Culver City Real Estate area.
This project will include:
- Trail improvements,
- Rehabilitation of decomposed dirt paths,
- Construction of two new ADA accessible path sections,
- Improvements to the entryways of the Boardwalk,
- Repairs to the Boardwalk, and
- Improvements to the extension of the Culver City Park Bicycle Path.
While construction is taking place, visitors to the area will have to contend with temporary loss of parking and access to walking paths. Construction fencing is in place to protect users from the construction site and activities. Local listing agent Martin Feinberg encourages all park visitors to be aware of construction zones, traffic controls, and parking restrictions.
Construction work will generally take place Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
According to the City of Culver City Public Works page, the approximate Construction Schedule for the Park to Playa Regional Trail will go as follows:
- May – June: Hillside ADA concrete ramp will be constructed along hillside near the upper field with limited impact to park users.
- Last 2 weeks of June: A portion of the uppermost parking lot and a short segment of the road leading up to the parking lot will be partially closed.
- June – July: a) The Culver City Interpretive Nature Trail, aka the Boardwalk, will be closed including the upper and lower entrances; b) approximately one-third of the lowest parking lot (across from the Dog Park) will be closed; 3) periodically, there will be no parking on the north side of Duquesne Ave.

This Project is partially funded by a Proposition 84 Grant from the Baldwin Hills Conservancy. The Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority will provide wayfinding signage for the Trail.
