Drive like your kids live here

The alley is the first planned shared street in the City of Los Angeles, designed to slow traffic, create a safe place for residents to relax, meet up with neighbors, and walk and bike.

The Bradley Green Alley Project is a two-block section, 0.67 acres of Bradley Alley, (intersection of Bradley Avenue and Van Nuys Boulevard) that increases open space in the community, captures and infiltrates polluted stormwater runoff for improved water quality and increase mobility for the San Fernando Gardens housing complex—all while helping to restore the natural environment of the Tujunga Wash and Los Angeles River.
