Family Fun - Wilson Park

Yet another reason we love Torrance: Wilson Park!

located at 2200 Crenshaw Blvd... on the west side of Crenshaw (between Del Amo & Sepulveda) Wilson Park is HUGE. You'd never know it from the street, but the park is 44+ acres... with a .9 mile walking path, a duck pond, minature train ride, playground, tree house, 3 ballfields, basketball, tennis, horseshoes, batting cages, and in-line skating rink!
Here's a view from Crenshaw:

Inside this large parking lot off Crenshaw, the Wilson Park/Torrance Farmer's Market is held on Tuesday and Saturday mornings from 8AM - 1PM:

Here's the entrance to the tree house...
voted best treehouse in LA by LA Weekly, this tree house is handicap/stroller accessible, and you get tree-top views from the south end...

One of my favorite spots is the duck pond. Recently renovated... it has shade, benches and lots of wildlife from nearby Madrona Marsh....
A perfect spot for family fun... This oasis is super close to our showroom (appx 3 miles). Don't miss it!!!
