Picnic in the Park

Will Rogers Memorial Park, Beverly Hills

Now is the perfect time of year to have a picnic in the park.  Summer is almost over, even though, here in Los Angeles, we'll be having hot weather for a few more months.  You don't have to be fussy with your picnic food.  There are so many places to pick up prepared salads and sandwiches around town, that all you have to do is add a beverage, picnic blanket and wear your sunhat and you're ready!
There are a number of City Parks around town that I enjoy.  First and foremost, Roxbury Park in Beverly Hills is my personal fave.  I also like nearby Hancock Park, near the La Brea Tar Pits.  The little park in front of the L.A. Memorial Library is sweet, but on Sundays the Library is closed, so there aren't any restroom facilities available.  The ultimate park in Los Angeles is the very huge Griffith Park.  There are quiet spots and busy areas in Griffith Park.  Another pleasant park for a picnic is the grassy area around Echo Park Lake.  You can rent a paddle boat at the Lake and see the last of the re-grown lotus blossoms.
I was perusing the Los Angeles Public Library Photo Archives for vintage picnic photos and came across the following ones.  We've been enjoying picnics in our City Parks for decades!

Will you be at the park this weekend with your picnic lunch?  Don't forget to bring a good book or your current yarny project!
