Whether you choose Los Angeles as your home or vacation destination, we all need some time in the outdoors to revive and feel more alive. This list of peaceful parks includes venues with ocean views like the original muscle beach and Palisades Park as well as Lake views at either Lake Balboa or Self-Realization Fellowship Shrine.
In the search for peace and harmony, there are many choices for green spaces in Los Angeles as well as a chance to learn about history at Will Rogers State Park. You can sit and contemplate, bring a picnic or enjoy many of the areas with special play areas for children.
Los Angeles may often be on the news for our traffic, but we should be better known for our outdoor choices! You can relax and unwind all over our beautiful city in many green spaces that are places to feel free and enjoy the outdoors and allow for peaceful relaxation and contemplation. If you are looking for a romantic spot for a date or proposal, this variety of venues should do the trick all over our unusual city. My friend proposed to his girlfriend at Westwood Recreation Park, but I can see that nearly every venue on this list could be a perfect spot to pop the question in a park! Enjoy your time in Los Angeles! Special Thanks to Joannie Parker, Shirin Yadegar and Amy Gendel Bowen for their help and suggestions!
