Shoreline Aquatic Park
Just beyond the spot where the L.A. River widens into the harbor, there is a lighthouse on a grassy hill, plus lots of meandering paths amid great vistas of the marina and surrounding area. Take a stroll starting at the Aquarium of the Pacific, go to the water, take a right and head along the water's edge. Curve around the beachfront areas, aiming for the lighthouse. Take the path that spirals up the grassy hill to the lighthouse.
