In 1769, a group of Spanish explorers, making their way through California from Mexico, stopped at the confluence of the Arroyo Seco and the LA River. They described the area as "a spacious valley, well-grown with cottonwood and alders, among which ran a beautiful river" and twelve years later, the Pueblo of Los Angeles was founded. The Confluence is historically significant, as it was from here that ditches or "zanjas" were constructed to supply River water to the Pueblo. Now a concrete-lined site, located where the 5 and 110 Freeways intersect, the Confluence represents an intersection of waters and cultures, the birthplace of what would become one of the most diverse cities in the modern world.

The Arroyo Seco Confluence is one of our smaller sites, so make sure to register early!
