Parks and Recreation
Valley Plaza Park
Our Neighborhood Council is lucky to be the partial home of the Valley Plaza Park and Recreation Center. With facilities on both sides of the 170 freeway, the park extends from Sherman Way south to Victory, even curving around to Laurel Canyon. The southern parts of the park are located in the Mid-Town North Hollywood and the Greater Valley Glen Councils, but the facility is open to all Los Angeles residents.
Our Neighborhood Council often joins the park for special or seasonal events, like the Halloween Festival and Spring Egg Hunt, or the one of the Movies in the Park this summer.
Features of the park include an auditorium, lighted baseball diamond and football field, lighted tennis courts, and unlighted volleyball courts, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, a childrens play area, and a community room. Park programs include seasonal sport activities, classes like ballet and karate, after school tutoring including transportation from local schools, and more.
The park also features a heated summer swimming pool with swimming classes and exercise programs.
The main office for the park is at 12240 Archwood Street, south of Vanowen. You can find out more information about the park, including classes and activities at http://www.laparks.org/dos/reccenter/facility/valleyPlazaRC.htm. The pool has its own website at http://www.laparks.org/dos/aquatic/facility/valleyPlazaPool.htm.
Victory-Vineland Recreation Center
Located next to the Target at the intersection of Victory and Vineland, this recreation center is outside of our Neighborhood Council boundaries, but is an enjoyable place for our residents on the south east side of our area. The park is smaller than Valley Plaza, but its basketball and tennis courts are lighted, and the large auditorium hosts classes and many indoor sport activities. You can learn more about the park and their programs at their website, http://www.laparks.org/dos/reccenter/facility/victoryVinelandRC.htm.
Sun Valley Recreation Center and Pool
To our north and east, many of our neighbors enjoy the Sun Valley Park and Pool. It is located at Vineland and Lorne, where Vineland curves to Sunland near the railroad tracks. Though smaller than Valley Plaza, this park includes several lighted sport courts and fields for outdoor fun and a full activity program. The indoor sport offerings are more limited, but there are plenty of classes and activities for kids and teens. You can find more information on the park at their website, http://www.laparks.org/dos/reccenter/facility/sunValleyRC.htm.
The pool at Sun Valley is also a favorite summer destination. Unlike Valley Plaza, the pool is unheated, but does have a water slide. The pool has its own website as part of the City aquatics program, at http://www.laparks.org/dos/aquatic/facility/sunValleyPool.htm.
And stay on the watch for the new Rory Shaw Wetlands Park, under development just west of the Sun Valley Recreation Center. This multi-million, multi-acre park and drainage basin is being created by a joint effort funded by the City Proposition O Bond, LA County, and LADWP as an open-space recreation facility and a drainage basis to control area storm flooding.
Other Nearby Parks
There are several other parks around our Council area, including the handicap-accessible Jaime Beth Slavin Park and Strathern Park North at the intersection of Strathern and Whitsett. There is also the Sheldon Arleta Park further north on Whitsett near the merging of the 170 and 5 freeways. You can find information and links to these and more City recreation facilities at the website for the LA City Recreation and Parks Department. The facility locator feature at the bottom left of the site will help you find everything in your area.
