West Exposition Boulevard Full review
avatarpicture ashleeharber THE BEST REVIEW
An amazing fun day out with family: The Exposition Park is a small lawn surrounded by arenas and museum. There are plenty of things to do. There's California Science Center within the premises too. Our kids enjoyed every bit of the exposition park. After our sightseeing, we grabbed some lunch from there too. It was a great place to visit especially as a family.
