Studio City Realtor Nicole Costas recommends…
Mature shade trees, family-friendly, Beeman Park!
Beeman Park is a highly desirable Studio City neighborhood bordered by Coldwater Canyon Avenue on the west, King Street on the north, Whitsett Avenue on the east, and the Los Angeles River to the south. This is a flat area north of Ventura Boulevard—in easy walking distance to chic boulevard life, restaurants and shops)—with manicured lawns and mature shade-trees, open space and larger than average lots, and a fantastic outdoor park that is the centerpiece for most Studio City recreation and athletic activities.
The "Studio City Recreation Center"—aka Beeman Park—is located at 12621 Rye Street, and is an extraordinary resource, with sports, dance, martial arts, and recreational programs for all ages, enough to fill your entire family's social calendar 24/7! Co-ed youth sports programs include baseball, basketball, soccer, and flag football. A wide array of classes are also available, from sports clinics, dance and self-defense to doubles tennis for seniors and senior exercise.
The Rec Center also provides a pre-school program, and a winter and summer camp—dedicated, of course, to Hollywood! There is a jogging path with a PAR Course (aka fitness trail), an auditorium, barbecue pits, four baseball diamonds (one lighted), lighted outdoor basketball courts, two play areas, picnic tables, four tennis courts, gymnastic equipment—and the second-largest youth baseball program in the public parks system. Recreational league sports are awesome, plus free outside gym workouts.
For active families, retirees, and fitness buffs, this is the place to be!
