Address: 601 Latimer Rd, Santa Monica, CA
One of the best parks in Los Angeles, located in an architecturally acclaimed neighborhood just south of Sunset where Santa Monica meets Pacific Palisades.
On-property amenities include a shaded sandlot playground, six tennis courts, indoor & outdoor basketball courts, baseball diamond, picnic tables, Eucalyptus grove, and 1920’s Spanish-style rec center. Plenty to do here, whether active with athletics or relaxing on a blanket, Rustic Canyon is one the city’s best kept secrets; a hidden “locals only” type of ambiance with rich Hollywood history.

While in the area, consider checking out Will Rogers State Park, the Santa Monica Stairs, Annenberg Community Beach House, Back on the Beach Cafe, and Palisades Village.
