Angels Walk Hits Figueroa

A year after the guidebooks were printed, stanchions for the Figueroa Corridor Angel's Walk are now finding their way into the ground. The walk route stretches from Wilshire Boulevard down to Exposition Park, and is one of several Angels Walk routes Downtown. Funded largely through Metro's Call for Projects, the Figueroa Corridor route's local match was partially funded by DLANC.

The self-guiding walking routes provide an interesting history for the area, but the program suffers from a lack of ongoing support. There is no website for Angels Walk that lists the various walks available, nor is there any way to find PDF or web versions of most of the guidebooks. Once printed and distributed they're simply unavailable.

The good news? These are correctable mistakes. Set up a website with full materials, then create an info sticker that can go on each stanchion. Suddenly a good idea gets a brand new life.
