Exposition Park Rose Garden and Fountain Is This Year's Great LA Walk Gathering Spot!

We have a gathering spot! Thanks to Exposition Park for allowing us to gather on Saturday morning, November 19, at 9 am at the Rose Garden fountain. It will be from that scenic spot that we will then embark on our journey, heading north on Figueroa to Adams. 

Exposition Park has easy access from the Metro Expo (E) Line, and of course there's also paid parking around the area. (And good news: There's no USC home game that Saturday, so the Coliseum won't be a madhouse.)

A little bit of history from the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks:

The Rose Garden is operated by the Los Angeles City Department of Recreation and Parks and has been since 1928. The Rose Garden is visited by hundreds of Angelinos and tourists each year. It is often used as an urban oasis by the local Community as a place of quiet and refuge. On most weekends between April and November, it is the location of choice for weddings and photographs of family gatherings.

See you there on Nov. 19! More details to come. (Photo via the California African American Museum.)

The Great Los Angeles Walk Returns to West Adams, Culver City and Venice For the First Time in 13 Years!

It's about time. One of my favorite Great Los Angeles Walks of all time was our 2009 journey, where we toured the architectural treasures of the West Adams neighborhood, and hit other historical buildings (plus a few famous homes from TV and film!) via both Adams and Washington.

Click here to recount our journey from that year.

Now, it's time to do it again! With a bit of a streamlined route. Rather than hop up and down repeatedly like we did in 2009, we'll take Adams from downtown to Culver City, where it intersects with Washington — and from there, we'll take Washington to the ocean (and Venice Beach). 

Of course, we'll still take a few detours along the way to explore! 

I'm still working out some details, including a starting point, so stay tuned!

But as always, keep the Saturday before Thanksgiving free, as we once again hit the sidewalks and streets of Los Angeles to explore our fine city.

Saturday, November 19, 2022 at 9 a.m.: It's the 17th annual Great Los Angeles Walk, the West Adams to Venice Beach edition!
