Although just outside of the downtown area, this bucolic park has a series of running and biking trails that make it a peaceful escape from city life.

There 's a lot of spots where you can see the view of downtown LA . Take a nice drive here to see the sunset. There's a hidden swing located on top of the hill near Angel's point.
