La Brea Tar Pits, Los Angeles, CA


Community and Real Estate Information

On top of the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, an ice-age excavation site has been preserved. At 5801 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, the landmark is located right across Hancock Park. Heavy oil fractions of gilsonite make up the majority of the natural formation's composition. In the middle of a major urban area, it is the only Ice Age fossil site that is presently being excavated. The Tar Pits have been excavated more than a hundred times since they were first discovered in the early 1900s, resulting in the discovery of mammoths, sloths, microfossils, plants, and more. Using these fossils, scientists may learn about ancient ecosystems and how climates have evolved over time. Also on display are well-preserved plants in a climate-controlled environment meant to replicate the natural flora of the Ice Age period. Paleontologists give lectures, virtual tours and sketching demos of your favorite Ice Age family, The Croods.


In front of the museum, you'll find the Lake Pit, a former asphalt mine that has accumulated groundwater since its closure. Because of this, the lake has a unique smell. Near the lake, there are beautiful exhibits where you may snap photos. Hancock Park also has wonderful outdoor places for visitors to enjoy. The park offers a variety of community resources, including a variety of children's programs that are available. Within walking distance of the park are several museums, cultural attractions and modern galleries that are ideal for a fun and instructive day out with the kids. The Pavilion for Japanese Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and others are all nearby attractions to the La Brea Tar Pits.
