“Beautiful Area!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Several years ago, I used to ride my bike every weekday morning from Culver City all the way to the end of the Ballona Creek bike path and back. It was really energizing and peaceful. It's a wonderful way to start the day.

When I was riding, there was one area that made me a bit uncomfortable because other riders were few and far between. I never had any problems, however.

Now, there are more riders and security cameras have been installed as well as emergency call boxes along the path. As a precaution, it's always best to bring your cell phone with you and to be aware of your surroundings. Enjoy the beauty, fresh air and sunshine, too.

Great for birders -- and one of the few wild spots in the area.

“Back to Nature!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I had not been back to this area for a long time, but was very impressed with the preservation efforts that have been made to keep this area in it's original natural state. Probably not everyone will share my view, but I think it deserves a visit if you're in the area and dressed for exploring a marshy preserve.
