Love this place! Ducks, koy, and turtles. The pond is nice and it's not just a straight paved trail.

eastern side was lovely. you would have no idea that this was anywhere near LA. the western side was a little plain but totally worth doing. make sure to keep referencing map with the eastern side as a lot of ways to go.
