Anthony C. Beilenson Park - Lake Balboa, CA
Woodley Lakes Golf Course - Bull Creek

 Awesome Playground!

Directions:
FREE PARKING!!!  From the 101 Freeway near the 405 Interchange, exit on Balboa and drive north for about a mile.  The park entrance will be on your right.

 Let's take a bike ride around the lake

 Is this The Barry Sanders?  Looks like a kickball court...

 Wandering around on foot...

 Our chariot awaits us!

 Woodley Lakes Golf Course...

 Ayden caught a fish with his bare hands!

 Crossing Bull Creek

We rode around and hiked back here...
 
This is the second time that I discovered amazing nature life right next to the busiest freeway intersections in the world!  Lake Balboa is a vast area.  Plenty of people grilling lunch on the barbie, kids playing, bikes riding, even a small sail boat?  People fishing, waterfalls, hiking, running, kites -- where am I; Yosemite?  Awesome spot.  I'm glad we found it!
