Kid's Tour of Los Angeles Union Station
Monday, 22 October 2007

The Los Angeles Conservancy kicks off its new Youth Outreach Program on Sunday, October 28 with a kids' tour of one of our city’s most beloved landmarks: Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.  Opened in 1939, Union Station is the last of the great train stations built in the United States.  It remains an active, elegant, and world-renowned transportation hub for Southern California.  It's also a great place for a kid's tour, with its grand spaces, colorful tile and public art, courtyards with fish-sculpture fountains, and obvious connection with trains.

Tour Los Angeles' Main Street
Monday, 22 October 2007
On November 4, the Los Angeles Conservancy will host a Sunday stroll down one of the city’s oldest streets and the latest hub of revitalization: downtown’s Main Street.  Lined with turn-of-the-20th-century architecture and reminders of lost landmarks, Main Street offers a perfect snapshot of Los Angeles past, present, and future.  It has a fascinating history dating back to the 1850s, when the street was a residential area of haciendas and livestock corrals.  Within twenty years, it had become the center of a young, restless, and largely lawless Los Angeles.
