A Natural Oasis in the Heart of Tinsel Town
Built on 32 acres in the heart of one of the nation's largest cities, Los Angeles State Historic Park opened in 2006 to serve the surrounding area's need for a public park. Often referred to as the "Central Park of Los Angeles," Los Angeles State Historic Park boasts unparalleled views of the Downtown skyline, bike paths, and plenty of green space for lounging, throwing a frisbee, or other recreational activities. Practically across the street from the Chinatown Metro station, the park also conveniently sits right between Dodger Stadium and the Los Angeles River. Los Angeles State Historic Park cabins are a bit hard to come by, seeing as you're in the heart of a major city, but nearby vacation rentals let you easily make the most of this outdoor space.
