Beautiful homes and views of the oceon outside of the Marina. Not much activity, but great for walking on the beach and watching the sunset.

A full environmental interactive learning experience. Great fun while you learn. Provides a wonderful outing for the family. Better than an amusement park!

People have been attacked along this route. Carry a gun. The scenery is nothing impressive. Would not recommend this route

The area around Ballona Creek is limited and it is not a site that I would tell tourists to be sure to see. It is a small outdoor area that does not offer a lot to see.

I'm not a super nature lover, so I think it is just ok. I prefer Malibu or Santa Monica Mountains for my nature loving moments when I have them. It is an estuary filled with wild life and is often in need of crew cleaning due to illegal dumping which is a shame. Efforts are underway to rehabilitate wildlife. Call... More

I like the path for exercise. I have used the path for cycling, jogging, and walking. I have done it when its dark, but maybe its better done in the daylight though.

I love this trail that I catch of Culver Blvd. (near Direct TV and Ronnie's Cafe) I take it all the way down to PDR. Along the way there are many marine birds including the magnificent blue herons and white egrets. There used to me a stunning row of rock sculptures along the bike path but perhaps the high tide...

B.C. was a battle ground for environmentalists and a big company, which shall remain unnamed, about development in that area. But many L.Angelenos said "No". One of my favorite places to hang out on a lazy weekend morning. Just a nice open-space to see the birds that make their annual migration.
