Walking L.A. #12 - Studio City's Woodbridge Park

This walk was a nice, casual 1.5 miles. The walk began on Tujunga Ave just south of Mookpark St where a lot of nice neighborhood restaurants, cafes, and shops are located. This place had a nice energy to it. Many young people were pouring into places like the Aroma Cafe for breakfast. We stopped there too for some coffee before getting started.

This is the 2nd time I've been to this neighborhood. The first time was when my wife was overdue with our son, and we attempted to hasten the process by eating at the Caioti Pizza Cafe which is famous for its labor-inducing Maternity Salad. It didn't work, by the way, but it was a nice lunch.

Back to the walk... we headed off Tujunga Ave into the nice, quiet neighborhood called Woodbridge Park famous for its house at 11222 Dilling St. which was the house from the Brady Bunch TV show. It looks a little different now with new paint and a low wall around the front yard. Across the street, we met a nice lady who had lived in the neighborhood for many years. She reminisced about how annoying it was having all that Brady Bunch filming going on.

After the walk, we returned to the Aroma Cafe for lunch. I like the vibe of that place a lot. I think I could enjoy living in Studio City.

The next walk is Laurel Canyon.
