Augustus F. Hawkins Natural Park

Directions & Map

Located at the corner of Compton and Slauson Avenues in South Los Angeles, 8.5-acre Augustus F. Hawkins Natural Park provides a serene natural environment in the urban core of the city. Native plant communities, oak trees, rolling hills, riparian areas, and a running stream mimic a native California setting. A strolling path, picnic and barbeque areas, an outdoor amphitheater, and grassy areas provide local residents and families comfortable gathering places to socialize and relax. Built by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, operations of the park were transfered to the City of Los Angeles in March of 2005.

The elegant, Craftsman style Evan Frankel Discovery Center houses interpretive displays about nature and natural resources issues, as well as a meeting and community room.

Address: 5790 Compton Avenue, Los Angeles
