BIDDY MASON PARK
By Eye Spy LA Editor
06/06/2013


TELL YOUR FRIENDS




The Biddy Mason Park is located behind the famous Bradbury Building at Broadway and 3rd. You can walk out the back door and right into the park.

Biddy Mason walked to California as a slave behind her master's wagon in the mid 1800's. A few years later she was able to petition for her freedom - California was anti-slavery. She went on to own a house and other parcels of property, run an orphanage and found a church in what is now Downtown L.A. The park is a cool oasis with trees, a water fountain, tables and chairs. A series of commemorative plaques tell her story.

Before heading to the park, stop into the Grand Central Market (on Broadway across the street) for some good eats to take with you.
