3. Tanner Springs Park
Located 20ft above what was once Couch Lake in the Pearl, this urban wetland lets you walk across the water on zig-zagging paths surrounded by a massive art installation involving 368 railroad tracks.
2. Mt. Tabor Park
A prime location for Concerts in the Parks, the city's second-best park serves up views of Hawthorne Boulevard from an extinguished volcano cone. Touting turrets, the reservoirs are pretty, too, so long as no one is causing E. coli scares by going potty in them again. It’s also the home of the Adult Soap Box Derby, which is exactly what it sounds like and twice as incredible.
