    Because this small botanical garden is located in a ravine, it's easy to forget that you're in the middle of Los Angeles as you stroll along the paths or sit on one of the benches admiring the mature trees surrounding you. There is a small stream with koi and a waterfall. (Admission is free, there is a charge for parking on campus.)
