Culver City Nature TrailStarting May 2018, construction on Segment 7 of the Park to Playa Regional Trail will commence. This segment runs through Culver City Park and links the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook Western Gateway with Ballona Creek. 

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. 

Due to the construction, visitors to the park may experience a temporary loss of parking and walking path access. Construction fencing will be installed to protect users from the construction site. Please be sure to follow all construction zones, traffic controls, and parking restrictions and your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Construction Hours: Monday through Friday, from 6:00am to 5:00pm 

Approximate Construction Schedule:

May - August: Hillside ADA concrete ramp will be constructed along hillside near the upper field with limited impact to park users.

July: 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 - August: 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. 

For more information, please contact Diana Szymanski, Project Manager/Associate Engineer, at (310) 253-5623 or

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