Thank you City of Angels for 32 years of a wonderful life, but alas I must move back to the land of my birth. I will miss L.A. and the River! I will leave the site up for some time to keep the info flowing about the river. Ciao' Angelenos it was fun. - k

Sunnynook River park is a little tricky to find. You have to walk down Glendale Blvd on the north side of the street (odd numbered addresses side). Walk past where Hyperion Ave and Glendale Blvd split staying on Glendale Blvd, walk to the 5 freeway North onramp and right directly before the onramp is the entrance to your right. Follow the bike path signs. Sunnynook River Park is a gem along the LA River. It is 3.4 acre walkway showcasing native plants, picnic tables, benches and the river! Once you find the entrance keep walking north along the river and you will find the Sunnynook footbridge where you can cross the river and continue your journey south on the river which leads to Red Car River Park.
