San Julian Park

5th and San Julian

This gated park is in the heart of Skid Row. It is used in the day by the homeless population. At night, the gate is closed. Keep an eye out for the automated public toilets (APTs) throughout Los Angeles, added to the city's landscape in 2006. Some, like the one pictured above (the dark green structure at right), are free, others cost 25 cents.
