Woodley Park is a forest within concrete surrounded Van Nuys. We can meet at the Japanese Gardens then continue to the picnic station. There are stone landings in the landscaped boulder rock garden just beyond the Japanese Gardens and before the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Preserve. There are so many places to explore here, from the lake to the Preserve to just hanging under a tree in the Park we can decide where to go when we get there. It's summer so you may want to bring some insect repellent for the more verdant areas.
