Address: 601 Latimer Rd, Santa Monica, CA
The best park in West LA – in terms of ambiance, amenities, cleanliness, climate, and crowd. Located in a cinematic, cabin-like canyon less than a mile south of Sunset, where Santa Monica and the Palisades connect.
On-property amenities include a playground, swimming pool, baseball diamond, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, picnic tables, Eucalyptus grove, and Spanish-style rec center dating back to the early 1920’s. Plenty to do here – whether active with athletics or snacking on a blanket – this is one the city’s best kept secrets; a hidden “locals only” canyon community with high-class, rich Hollywood history.
