I think it would be hard to relax here and is definitrly another area to avoid at night. I had to frame photos carefully to avoid those sleeping rough - and I went at 1pm! Lots of poor people in the area, possibly drawn by the 99c Store. Park undergoing upgrade works at the moment. Back side of lake has... More

I ran to, and in, MacArthur Park with some initial concern. I'm a runner, and Mac Park was only a few blocks from my hotel; but the running websites had more than a few warnings that one could feel uncomfortable at best and threatened at worse. Maybe I just happened to hit it on a couple of good days, but... More

Very pretty park. Birds. Island and fountain. Enjoy it with the veterans and every one from the neighborhood. On a sunny day with a belly full of Langer's Pastrami you have to get out and walk and visit the statues, especially the one dedicated to Douglas MacArthur.

I've lived around this park my whole life and it's not a place I would recommend to anyone coming to LA. The park is dirty, the water is filthy, and you'll find illegal activity going on inside and outside the park. There are better parks in LA so don't waste your time here.

I remember my Mother taking me to the dedication of this park. I vaguely remember soldiers being lined up and me being in between some of them!! I do not remember in the General was there or not!! I think that I was there in the early 1950's !!

The Park is cleaned up and being revitalized. It was once crime riddled and dangerous but since 2002 community leaders have stepped forward to clean it up.
