Don’t be a square! Instagram your park photos!

Hi! Geneva here. I wanted to share with you one of the great joys I have found in the Park. I have been an amateur photographer my whole life. I also feel like I have owned a camera, of some kind, my whole life. While in college I took photography classes and learned to process my own pictures. Let’s just say I love taking pictures and the Park is the perfect place to take pictures.

Get Caught up in Fishing City Park : a BIG fish caught just moments ago!

Caught just moments ago!

City Park is great for fishing! There are many types of fish in our waterways and we encourage catch and release. Check out our Fishing Guide for more information. Grab your LA fishing licence and your gear and find a spot to fish along our 22 miles of shoreline. If you think you catch a record breaking fish, you'll need to follow these guidelines to get the info to the Park. 

Pictured: Tim Zissis holding the fish he caught today (4/17/14) in City Park. Tim is the current Bass Fish Record Holder in City Park with a 9.05 lb bass he caught in August of 2013.
