"A Metropolitan Jungle"

More like its name, Ferndell is not exactly a museum, but a beautiful trail leading to the Griffith Observatory. Once home to the Tongva/Gabrielino tribe, the trail has a natural spring and various planned installations of bridges and railings. Foliage including ferns, create a bubble of clean air and a peaceful environment not away from the city. The natural stream provides the trees and plants with water as it flows through the hill accompanying the trail. Besides the flora, turtles, large koi fish, crayfish, butterflies and dragonflies add to the beauty of the trail. The trail also features waterfalls, ponds and bamboo bridges which were added during its transformation to create an atmosphere similar to that of a rainforest. The lush green plantation attracts many locals and tourists for an elevated trail rather than simply driving up to the Griffith Observatory. Locals can be spotted taking a jog or hiking up accompanied by their little ones for a fun day out. The collective display of nature and wildlife is equivalent to an interactive museum exhibit that must not be missed.
