Studio City has a ton of great parks, but North Valleyheart Riverwalk beats others hands down when it comes to environmental friendliness. This is one of the few places in LA where you can see great strides being taken to achieve a greener community, plus there’s a great trail to follow for exploring the area.
Experience the revitalization of the Los Angeles River by taking a stroll along this 1.9 mile stretch in Studio City, flanked by two small parks. Enter from the Laurelgrove Avenue Footbridge at the intersection with Valleyheart Drive, the latter of which runs parallel to the L.A. River in the San Fernando Valley. You’ll encounter treasures such as Great Toad Gate, Valleyway Greenway, Rattlesnake Wall, and Butterfly Garden.
