The park also encompasses sports fields, a childrens playground and a recreation building. A site once used mainly to repair and maintain railroad cars now offers visitors the chance to restore and replenish their inner needs.

I ride this with my horse once week, year round. The river here is home to many encampments, so please don't take it on at night without a buddy. You'll hear the traffic from the 5, and the river here has dangerously high levels of e. coli. so please don't go in! In fact, I inspect my horse for any cuts before we walk across to get to Griffith Park.

A great little "get away" right in the middle of the city. Lots of birds, nice walk. Can be very beautiful in early morning or at sunset.
