  • We went there for two parties this summer and then I took the students their for summer camp. It’s free in the week at the weekend you have to pay $6 entrance fee! They park is lovely lots of free play we took a picnic and stayed all day. They provide picnic areas which are shaded. You can hike too. Four or five different play areas and when they get to hot in the summer walk along the lovely stream that on the lower park. If you want it for a birthday party they allow you to bring your bouncy castle!
  • Great getaway in the middle of LA. There's a few hiking trails that make for a decent workout. There is a lot of space and different areas to explore. Great for families. Dogs are welcome on leash. Views of downtown or ocean on clear days. A nice oasis from the chaos of the city.
