A gritty walk through a post-industrial site (the old Southern Pacific railyard), but it's fun to explore the ruins of the roundhouse and other artifacts from the railyard. Plus, there is art! Sculptures from Clockshop, and views of the L.A. River. I expect this area will change quite a bit as the park is developed and the new Selgascano-designed visitor center is put in. It'll be nicer than now, certainly, but I enjoyed seeing this parcel before it becomes "green gentrified."
