Events, weddings and banquets are often held at the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens, but the former site of the Lawry's California Center is an ideal spot for an afternoon stroll as well. Stop by the visitor center, which serves as an exhibit hall celebrating the LA river (yes, it's making a comeback), or walk through the River Garden Park at the corner of San Fernando Road and Avenue 26, where you might see families picnicking or joggers taking a water break.

I came here recently for a food festival, and the venue is beautiful. Very serene, lush and spacious, with a trickling water fountain that lends a spa-like quality to the park. I haven't explored the whole grounds, but the main gardens that greet you when you enter are gorgeous.
