I've visited the many times to cover historical events, but this past Saturday was my first look inside the neighboring Calabasas Creek Park.
The small parcel features a Victorian-era drinking fountain, a replica Chumash village and its most prominent trait: its serenity.
The 101 Freeway is about 30 feet away from the park, but it's easy to forget where you are with a large canopy of trees above your head and the calming sounds of a gently-flowing creek.
I took a few minutes to reflect by the creek as bodies of water somehow seem to trigger deep thinking.
That's when I came across some ducks and decided to make them the stars of this week's photo.
Calabasas Creek Park is just another of example of how nature and progress co-exist within the community and a reminder that the nearest trail, park or lake is only a few minutes away.
The park is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and 1-4 p.m. on Sundays.
