It's a great place to go to with kids, if you want them to learn something and not only fill their heads with cotton candy in an amusement park.

It is a restored marsh with a lot of native plants and animals. Plants are beautiful and interesting and there are educational signs everywhere, so you always know what you see.

One of my absolute favorites were the places for the observation of birds. There are also several restoration programs, it is a very sympathetic place. Don't forget to bring your kids! :)

Lincoln Blvd & W Jefferson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90066, USA

It's a great place for hiking and to watch birds, the water fowls are also beautiful. You can even catch a fox if you are lucky.Reply
