Smooshed between two golf courses and an army base, this Sepulveda Dam runoff is 27 acres of amoeba shaped lake on which you can fly fish, pedal boat, or BYOKayak. There’s a mile long path around the lake lined with charcoal grills, family picnics, and 1000 trees donated by the Valley Industry and Commerce Association. But while getting your morning walk on, the best part is watching the birds. People say dogs help combat depression, but birds are both dumber and hungrier than dogs making for a scenic and uplifting exercise regime.
