  • Beautiful walk under the palm trees over looking Santa Monica beach. All kinds of plants along the pathway. Great picture stops.
  • Views were incredible of Ocean and Beach. Park was filled with homeless and sheltered like urine. Not sure how locals could walk and run, but they just went about there business. Sad to see this once great place to go regularly as a kid turn into a mix of the extreme upper and lower financial groups. Guess if you're rich you don't have to see the problem as you drive your convertible Porches and Lambos.
