Roxbury Memorial Park in Beverly Hills

Jun 09, 2010 by Lisa Newton

At the corner of Olympic Boulevard and South Roxbury Drive in Beverly Hills sits 11 acres of manicured green space–that’s right, it’s a park.

But not just any park, it’s the Roxbury Memorial Park.

Although I’ve passed by it innumerable times, it wasn’t until I actually took the time to stop and take a look that I actually saw it. I had absolutely no idea how many activities this wonderful oasis of open green park space actually has:

This large and gorgeous manicured grass space is used for lawn bowling. If you’re curious about lawn bowling, here’s a great introductory video:

Now it’s time to head back over to explore the rest of Roxbury Memorial Park:

What a wonderful children’s playground. I was here on a Saturday afternoon, and the kids were out in full force. What child doesn’t want to swing, dig, climb, and enjoy a day of just having fun?

Roses, beautiful yellow roses and the plaque accompanying them is even more beautiful:

This rose garden is dedicated to Laura Tallen Kane by her husband David Paul Kane as a tribute to Mrs. Tallen Kane who loved yellow roses and enjoyed visiting Roxbury Park. Mr. Kane dedicated the funds to create this garden. 1999

Before I even started walking, I could hear this game. It’s amazing always fun watching our youth playing some pick up Basketball, while getting a lot of exercise while having fun at the same time.

Nothing matches the smell of an outside grill–there’s nothing like it.

Here’s a wonderful public art sculpture located at the far corner of the park.

It’s entitled, The Conversation by the artist and sculptor, Alec McCrae. /p>

After walking around and seeing the lawn bowling green lawns, the lively basketball game, the picnic tables the grills being used in full force, the children having fun at the playground, and some wonderful Public Art–it’s time for some quiet seclusion:

For me, Roxbury Memorial Park is now permanently on my radar as a to-go place. So, if on some weekend–or weekday–occasion, you find yourself with nothing to do, but want a little fresh air, pencil in Roxbury Memorial Park.

You’ll be happy you did.
