Footbridge Square is another charming neighborhood of Studio City that runs along the LA River to the south, east of Whitsett Ave and south of Moorpark St. Made up of a mix between original single family homes and new construction, this area is very popular among local residents who are known for their fourth of July celebrations every summer. The area gets its name from a footbridge that crosses the LA River at Laurelgrove Ave and Valleyheart Dr, allowing pedestrians easier access to shops and restaurants along Ventura Blvd. This stretch of the LA River is also home to some beautiful revitalized nature trails such as the Los Angles River Greenway Park Trail. And the recently opened Zev Yaroslavsky LA River Greenway Trail, which opened June of 2017 at Whitsett Ave and Valleyheart Dr.
