The Los Angeles River curves along the northeast edge of town before it makes its final stretch to Long Beach. Maywood decided to take advantage of these beautiful riverbanks by creating the Riverfront Park. This park is nice breath of fresh air in one of California's most densely populated counties, allowing for Maywood residents to get out and play in this green oasis. Maywood's Riverfront Park is the city's largest park, with lush green lawns that can be used for picnicking, sunbathing, or a wide variety of sports. So pack a picnic, grab the family, and spend a fun day enjoying the outdoors at the park.
