That's the best parking in downtown. Price maximum-16$ from 4 pm until 11 am next day. Strictly recommended in this area.

Not a lot here to see, not my idea of a public space. A few statues, a bit of greenery and some benches in the shade inhabited by some undesirable characters I’m afraid. Near to a metro stop and close the the Central library which...More

I would only seek out this destination if there were an event going on and would definitely not consider it a must see. The park is close to some very interesting buildings---The Biltmore (iconic LA hotel) and the Title Guarantee and Trust Building (art deco)...More

We really enjoy this park mostly due to its location, which is in the center of the downtown area. After a day of wandering and sight seeing, we many times end up here on a bench with a sandwich and a drink. There is a...More

It's a art spot with great spots to take nice photos. It's nice to read, walk or just relax. Near a Metro station it's perfect for a break.

Pershing Square is downtown L.A.'s largest public space. Sadly, it lacks much greenery and is dotted with large concrete pillars and towers. There's really not much to see or do (there is an outdoor skating rink in winter) and it attracts many homeless and mentally...More

Town square of Los Angeles. Not much of a gathering place. The design turns people away rather than embracing them. Needs to be demolished and rebuilt to attract people. Perhaps an old fashion band stand is needed. Only redeeming features might be the subway stop...More

This was my least favorite public area in LA (not that I hit them all). Compared to other public spaces, this was definitely underutilized, even by the homeless, because there is not enough shaded area. I did like the main sculpture that towers over the...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

It is in the middle in commercial area of the city. It is just another city square in a city. If you have time, it is worth stopping by to see and eat around there. I did not plan to go there myself but was there because of... More
