A photo of a father and son visiting the Gateway to Nature Center in downtown Los Angeles
Visitors at the Gateway to Nature Center in downtown Los Angeles learn about the area’s mountains, forests and parks. The aim is that visitors, especially urban community members, leave the Center interested in exploring the outdoors more.

Check out this 5-minute video showcasing the newly opened visitor center in the historic El Pueblo Monument, the birthplace of Los Angeles. Partners include the nonprofit Western National Parks Association, the National Park Service, the Forest Service, and the City of Los Angeles. The Center is a unique resource which can engage millions of people to appreciate and hopefully to explore the open space that surrounds the 2nd largest city in the U.S.  Follow this link to learn more about this partnership success story!
