A museum without walls.......
Located just below the bluff of LMU in Playa Vista, the 1.7 acre Ballona Discovery Park looks to bring science, education and community together. Built on behalf of the partnership between LMU, Friends of Ballona Wetlands and Playa Vista, the Ballona Discovery Park displays the history of the Ballona Wetlands as seen through aspects of culture and science (Check out Friends of Ballona Wetlands detailed chronology of the Ballona Wetlands history). The park includes something for everyone and of all ages, from interactive exhibits to a recreation of a Tongvan living space. The Ballona Discovery Park will be the center for LMU/CURes to roll out state-of-the-art research and education initiatives about urban ecology and watershed habitats worldwide.
