I love nature

Even though it is located in the heart of LA, Ferndell Nature Center feels worlds away. Ferndell is located on the far side of the Los Feliz Blvd. stretch and features a trickling river, lots of shady trees and benches. It’s the perfect way to escape from high-intensity city life in LA. In Ruby Sparks, Paul Dano’s character is shown biking down the narrow path of the park. Toward the end of the film, Dano is shown reading his newly published novel to an audience at Skylight Books, located less than two miles from Ferndell on the popular Vermont strip (a few steps away from Figaro Café where Made of Honor was filmed). The bookstore hosts book readings on an almost daily basis in addition to the monthly meetings of their various book clubs.
