Kenneth Hahn State Recreational Area
Where we've featured it
Even long-time LA residents don’t realize just how massive Kenneth Hahn actually is. At over 300 acres, this sprawling park in between Culver City and Baldwin Hills has a fishing lake, sand volleyball courts, Japanese gardens, and over seven miles of hiking and biking trails. When it comes to picnics, you have dozens of choices, but our move is to hike up the hill to the MLK Jr. Memorial Grove. This monument and adjoining green space has the best views of Downtown, and depending on the season, you might even get some snow-capped peaks of the San Gabriel Mountains in the distance. For food, we recommend grabbing some hot chicken sandwiches from Hotville, pastries from Destroyer, or jerk chicken and festival bread from Country-Style in Inglewood.
