Los Angeles is known for it’s amazing hiking trails within the city. The trouble is, most times you have to deal with an influx of people when frequenting these trails, but I’ve found a place that is just as great but is more tranquil.

Between the Baldwin Hills Mountains and Culver City lies Kenneth Hahn State Park.

An urban oasis as it is often called, is an absolutely unforgettable experience. What I’m going to do is convince you as to why you should go no matter where you are in Los Angeles.

If you live in L.A. the first thing I’m going to tell you is going to blow your mind. Reason being is because if you live in the Greater Los Angeles Area, you know that one of the biggest headaches is trying to find parking.

This is definitely not the case with Kenneth Hahn as it has one of the biggest number of parking lots on multiple sides of the location. Here are a few things you will be excited to be aware of before you make your visit.

  1. LOADS OF PARKING. As mentioned before, this place has an abundant amount of parking that is free of charge Monday through Friday.

It’s $6.00 for the entire day on the weekend and only $12.00 if you have an RV or trailer.


Even on its busiest days, I’ve never not been able to find a parking space.

Like I said, you may be passing out right now if you live in Los Angeles, but I encourage you to see for yourself.

2. MULTIPLE HIKING TRAILS. In most cases and in other places, everyone seems to all be on one or two trails which can make it super crowded. If you’re going to get some down time, the last thing you would like to do is be surrounded by a million people.

Even on the busiest of days, which is usually the weekend, you can find a trail all to yourself.

3. A JAPANESE GARDEN. This is by far the most elegant part of the area. On the LaCienega Boulevard, bottom side of the park lies a Japanese garden with a pond that’s filed with lily pads and wildlife.
