Ferraro Fields


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: 3 of Glendale Narrows

SITE: Griffith Park, Zoo Drive between 5 & 134 Freeways, Los Angeles, 90027

Where else can you play soccer next to a movie studio, a river confluence, a freeway interchange, and the largest urban wilderness park in the U.S.?

As you ride up the L.A. River bike path, this park offers the first respite from the roar of the 5 freeway as you curve towards Burbank. The park has five regulation and two practice soccer and rugby fields, and at its north end is the Griffith Park Dog Park, where you can enjoy a riverside picnic with your best friends. Across the river you'll see the Dreamworks movie studio and the Glendale Narrows Riverwalk, to which you'll soon be able to reach on a bridge that is being planned for the near future, along with a proposal to bring a side-stream from the L.A. River to the field grounds.
