No biking in the park!

It's no secret that there are many beautiful spots along the Arroyo Seco, from the Angeles Crest all the way down to the confluence with the LA River.

If you follow the roads north from Highland Park, you will notice the houses getting bigger and the landscape becoming more lush. It's a bit of a surprise, then, to find this refreshingly ramshackle little park right across the street from a bunch of mansions.

I guess this was a fountain. Once upon a time.

I couldn't figure out whether this was a figure or an ideogram.

More photos after the jump.

It's a short walk down to the Arroyo, where there are hiking trails.

I could not figure out what this was. I guess it's a hearth, but I don't know what that little hole is for.

A short walk to the Colorado St. Bridge, and then on to the Rose Bowl.
