Mexican Fan Palms, A Large Bike Scene, and the Nation’s Busiest Seaport: Welcome to Wilmington

The Los Angeles neighborhood of Wilmington, proudly known as the “Heart of the Harbor,” is home to a section of the Port of Los Angeles, the nation’s busiest sea port, an eclectic downtown district, and an iconic lineup of Mexican Fan Palms. On this WalkShop, stroll beneath the palms, visit local businesses, and see the met and unmet transportation needs of this community in Los Angeles – which has the city’s highest per-capita bike usage. We’ll then continue on bike share to the future site of the Wilmington Waterfront redevelopment, and then finally onto a boat to tour the Port of Los Angeles – the nation’s busiest seaport. See how all these diverse land (and water) uses connect now, and will in the future in this unique neighborhood.
