Calm , serene, quiet. Benches and picnic tables through out, as well as grills. Pond with ducks and other various wildlife. Rabbits running around. Plenty of little secluded spots to chill. Clean. Good for kids and adults.

My 4 and 6 year old love having adventures here. We also play baseball on the open green space. Great work out for the family!

Oh my gosh!!! This park is awesomely, beautifully, well kept; however, there are a few employees that act as though they own the park, & watch you like you're not going to adhere to the rules of the park. The plants upon entering are just gorgeous. This is a great place to bring children, & I have seen patrons pick-up their animals waste. The only uncouth dogs I've seen were strays. There's lots of dust that kicks up due to the unpaved entryway, so I just roll up my windows... The restrooms are very clean if you come after maintenance has cleaned up; sometimes b4 maintenance comes, it's quite nasty in the individual stalls....

I've been coming to this park for about 4 years and now the city has put money and effort to make this place clean and enjoyable. They have the little water fall on with water which make it a better place to come. With water fall running, you can't hear the city noise pollution and feels tranquil. I love it better than before. The park would be better if you don't close it at 4 pm, should make it sunset. Thanks city of LA
