Tongva Park

Parking lots turned into parks it’s the latest green trend in LA, and who could complain after setting eyes on Santa Monica’s Tongva Park? This idyllic and well designed ocean-adjacent oasis harbors a playground, meadows, waterfalls, walking paths and a conch-like wireframe lookout to the Pacific. Artist I–igo Manglano-Ovalle’s kinetic sculpture Weather Field anchors the park as a minimal, serene and instantly memorable landmark. Most that come to Santa Monica will flock to Palisades Park for good reason, as the ocean views from the palm and eucalyptus-lined paths are breathtaking but our allegiances lie with this low-key newcomer.
