The Puente Hills landfill-to-park conversion was just approved, and, in a new video, a neighbor says it's "a great opportunity for us to turn something that was so ugly and nasty to one that is beautiful."

CicLAvia Southeast Cities ran a 10-mile route through Huntington Park, Walnut Park, South Gate, Florence-Firestone, Lynwood, and Watts. Thousands showed up to run, walk, and ride; here are some great photos that show how the day went.
