The Evergreen Jogging Track in Boyle Heights is a heavily frequented place for walkers, joggers, and moms pushing baby strollers. Working class Boyle Heights is not a place of many fancy health clubs or golf courses; it is a densely populated urban neighborhood sandwiched between multiple notorious LA freeways. The Evergreen Jogging Track is a place where all walks of East LA life come together to take advantage of vehicle-free exercise and the verdant ambiance. It is, in essence, an outdoor public health club. Over the years so many people used the path for their daily exercise over the years that neighborhood activists forced the city to install decorative streetlamps and a high-tech rubberized track surface so that residents could safely exercise without tripping over broken concrete and tree roots.
