Exposition Park is a huge cultural center, with museums and acres of gardens, right in the middle of urban Los Angeles. One of the most stunning features is the Rose Garden, featuring thousands of rose plants of hundreds of different varieties. At one point there were plans to tear down the garden and replace it with a parking garage, but luckily it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in time!

I couldn’t get enough of the Edible Garden! It’s so thoughtfully put together, with fun and adorable informative signs. It’s basically my dream kitchen garden come to life. My best friend, who I was visiting in Los Angeles, took me here because she knew how much I would adore it.
This was just one section of the Nature Garden (although my favorite clearly), others include a Pollinator Garden, ‘Get Dirty Zone’ for kids, and a pond to watch wildlife.
