Yim’s tour offers a brief history of transportation, and how the natural beauty of the Arroyo Seco attracted people to the community of Highland Park. Participants will learn about the colorful history surrounding Sycamore Park, as well as the people, places and events that have shaped the history of this community. This tour will meet in front of La Casita Verde (former Ziegler House), at 4601 North Figueroa Street.

Tour participants will walk on cemented sidewalks, on grass through the park and on dirty trails. This tour is partially uphill, and therefore closed toe shoes with good traction, water and sunscreen are highly recommended. The distance covered on this tour will be about 1 to 1.5 miles, but the uphill walk will make it difficult for some
