Won't you join us for a walk in Westwood? On the Bruin Walk, we'll meander through Westwood Village and UCLA while discussing the area's history and the pros and cons of its pedestrian environment. How do street and neighborhood design come together in this hub of commerce, housing and higher education? What changes are people in the neighborhood trying to make? How does the Great Streets program fit in? What lessons does this charming area have for the rest of the City? What is Rancho San Jose de Buenos Aires? Come find out, while having fun, getting exercise and supporting a great cause: Los Angeles Walks!

Arriving by Walking: By all means, this is Westwood after all! Sidewalks are mostly intact except for some nearby construction to the west and east on Lindbrook Drive.
Arriving by Bike: The Los Angeles Department of Transportation has a map of bikeways on its website. Bike parking is a bit scarce, but there are a few places to lock up bikes on nearby sidewalks.
Arriving by Transit: The starting point is within easy walking distance of several bus lines, including Metro Lines 20, 720 & 761; Big Blue Bus Lines 1, 2, 3M, 8 & 12 and Culver City Bus Line 6. Subway service expected within a few decades.
Arriving by Car: The City parking structure at 1036 Broxton Avenue is a good bet (cash only). Generally speaking expect to pay for parking on or off-street. Bring cash, quarters and a credit card and pay attention to time limits.
