Bette Davis Picnic Area
Play the L.A. River is a come-one-come-all project by the arts collective Project 51 -- a collective of L.A. River-loving artists, designers, planners, writers, educators -- that invites Angelenos to explore, enjoy, reclaim, and reimagine the mighty L.A. River as a grand civic space that can green and connect our communities.
CARD: Ace of Glendale Narrows
SITE: 1600 Rancho Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 91201
A stray, shady slice of Griffith Park. Enjoy the big old sycamores, and find where the soft-bottom stretch of Glendale Narrows begins.
As you take a walk around the area, you might come across bird watchers along the river's bank, hoping to to catch a glimpse of a Summer Tanager or Cassin's Vireo. Or run into the Swift Water Rescue Team in the midst of practice drills, in the event of someone falling into the river. A group of childhood friends may be playing soccer golf in the fields, or a horse may be practicing dance steps on the cement banks.
Check out a photo essay of this unexpectedly beautiful area here.
