Griffith Park’s Fern Dell blends the natural and man-made into a unique transition zone between the park’s manicured and wilderness areas. Native and exotic ferns thrive in this spring-fed ravine shaded by California oaks, sycamores, and coastal redwoods. Rock walls and faux bois elements, many shaped by New Deal workers, add an overlay of rustic charm. Deterioration of the nearly 100-year-old site set in when skilled maintenance ended in the 1970s.
Other gardens included in this tour:
