Griffith Park’s Life-giving Waters: Ferndell

In one corner of Griffith Park is a beautiful garden with water flowing all year long. It’s a short walk from a subway station and makes for the perfect hike to the Griffith Observatory.

The Southwest Museum might be my favorite building in L.A. It’s a captivating half-ruin that still functions as a museum, and is easy to reach on the Gold Line.
