On Sunday, April 24, 2022, the Westwood Neighborhood Greenway was honored to be featured on the Theodore Payne Native Plant Garden Tour (one of 34 locations throughout the county.) The Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers & Native Plants, is an organization that promotes biodiversity and climate resilience through utilizing our California native plant species. 

The Westwood Neighborhood Greenway has also been designated a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation and an Ocean Friendly Garden by the Surfrider Foundation.

In 2022 the American Planning Association, Los Angeles Section, awarded the Greenway an Award of Merit in Innovation in Green Community Planning.


The Westwood Neighborhood Greenway has been honored to receive grant monies from

  • Councilmember Paul Koretz (July 2021), to provide “seed money” to professionalize our fundraising and board development
  • Supervisor Sheila Keuhl (2022), for mural supplies (pending other mural funding)

We are also supported by the Westside Neighborhood Council, through their provision of a porta-potty for community events.
