Pershing Square, B-52's Concert! Los Angeles, CaliforniaMy best friend Anthony DeGoede told me about the B-52's concert at Pershing Square for FREE and I was very excited to attend.However, when we all arrive, there were people everywhere and we all nearly gave up because we were told that there was no more room inside that area to fit any more people.Well, I spoke to some homeless guy who knows the area and I am so glad that I took his advice because he told me to go through the underground parking lot all the way to the end and hopefully I can get in.Well, when I got to the end, I went upstairs to another area where there were a lot of people and we were separated by a big metal fence.I honestly could Not see very well from there, however, Luck Soon Approached All Of Us.Maybe within about one (1) hour from when we arrived to that area somebody opened up the fence and let a lot of us in and then the view got much, much better.However, it was still hard to see due to the crowd size, but there was a Statue that I was able to crawl up on and there were other people standing up there as well and so throughout most of the concert, I ended up dancing with the statue.This was Not very comfortable for ME, but I guess it was better than Nothing!This was far from the way that I like to enjoy my concerts.My rating of 3 stars out of 5 reflects the concert situation and their disorganization and Not "The 52-s" themselves.Often it is just better to pay for the Concert than to accept a free one and have to Suffer like this.I personally want to thank my best friend Anthony DeGoede for inviting ME there and The B-52's for putting on a Fantastic Show despite the circumstances back on Saturday, August 12, 2017.Sincerely yours,Howard Paul ShoreVisitorExecutive, Volunteer Writer For Google And Tripadvisor Websites/HPS
The bad first: there isn't a lot to "do" at this park except see the roses. The fountain is usually dry thanks to the drought. The sidewalks are in poor shape and in desperate need of repair. It's often full of folks going to the Science Center or an event at the Colosseum. The good: Holy crap the roses. The roses are INCREDIBLE. Thousands of types of roses in thousands of colors - all really well maintained. And there are roses in bloom all year round, thanks to our awesome SoCal weather. It's a beautiful spot in what many think of as a bad part of town. Worth the visit.
Anyone with a child who's into superheroes needs to head up here to visit "The Bat Cave" from the 1960s TV series. We like to park by the playground (a small-but-fun fenced in play area with a tire swing my kids can't get enough of) and after a while, we take the 20-minute hike up to the cave (past the playground, a trail winds up the hill to the right). It's an easy hike for kids, and knowing the bat cave is at the top motivates them to get there.
I am kind of a crazy dog person in that I am crazy about dogs, my dog specifically, not crazy in general. I tell him how handsome he is about thirty two times a day and buy him giant cow bones from the italian market and tell him &quot;Go, claim your ancestry. Gnaw and get that marrow in you so that you may not take notice that you are but a resplendent shadow of your former wolfish splendor.&quot; (He = siberian husky).
The upper part of this downtown park has a splash pad for kids (conveniently adjacent to a Starbucks!) Lots of shaded tables and chairs for mom and dad to hang out and watch kids play on hot days. The lower part of the park (near City Hall) has a small enclosed playground with a giant slide my kids enjoy. Convenient walk to Grand Central Market for lunch and close to subway stop.
l need this badly! I'm a designer, and an architecture teacher & coming to LA for the holidays! Can't wait to leave the cold of Chicago to see the beauty of winter with all the landscapes, terrains, flowers and cool buildings.Look out Pacific Design Center I'm on my way...Barsndall Art Park is one of the best destinations on my trips to LA that I've done in the past.
I would love to love this nearby park, which is quite picturesque. Unfortunately, it still feels a little seedy/unsafe at times. It's not my go-to park to visit with young children, but I do like the small cafe, which is located at the boathouse... great french toast sticks and breakfast grits with poached eggs and tomato chutney.
Whenever I have friends or family coming to visit me in the city, I like to take them to Runyon Canyon Park. Not only we can get a great view of the city from here, but also we can have a decent workout. It is also a great date spot! However, it is not an ideal place for doing meditation.
This beautiful L.A. County park is a bit of secret to many. It offers great hiking trails, a lake, playground and workout equipment and a Japanese garden. It's also a great place to take your dog for a walk. While parking is $6 on weekends, it's free to park during the week.
I appreciate that there's a dog park here and that they've been working in recent years to make it nicer, but there are no mature trees and the shade structures aren't great. Plus the little dog side is very small. Basically dirt surrounded by a chain link fence.
