This LA Park in West Hills, California is the former vacation home and retirement residence of William Warren Orcutt, who discovered the prehistoric fossils at the La Brea Tar Pits. It's a nice escape as it's not too busy during the week. I spent about an hour walking around mostly alone on the nature trail. There are park benches and picnic table throughout the property. I saw a woman practicing tai-chi near the empty creek.
If you're looking for alternate park during Covid, this would be a good option as it seems a bit hidden and unpopular -- and the restrooms are clean. It's a a peaceful place to walk, run, meditate, and learn about Los Angeles history.
I love exploring Los Angeles like a tourist. I have as much fun in my hometown as I do traveling to another country. I hope my adventures inspire you to eat well and travel often.
