If your child needs to let loose and run like the wind, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better place than The Meadow in Silver Lake.
Located directly next to the reservoir on Silver Lake Boulevard, it is one of the best locations to run, fly a kite, or just sit and chill with a picnic. Although, our one complaint is that the ground is consistently soggy. Not sure what that's about. But it's nothing a good lawn chair can't cure. Besides, we're usually too busy romping around to sit still anyway.
My little one always enjoys a good bike ride along the path that winds through the grassy expanse.
