Hamster Show at Serrano Creek Park in Lake Forest (weather permitting, barring a major weather event). Come prepared for a joint hamster show and picnic in the park.  There are shady and sunny areas as well as playground equipment, restrooms, and soda and water vending machines.  Bring a blanket and picnic lunch to enjoy.  You will want to also bring a chair to watch the show since picnic benches are limited and may not allow you to be close enough to see or hear well.

Directions

From the 405 or 5 Southbound, take the Lake Forest Drive exit.  Turn left off the freeway off-ramp onto Lake Forest Drive.  Stay on Lake Forest for a mile or so and make a left onto Serrano (stop light).  The park will be on your right.  This park is down the street below the Ralph's Shopping Center.   It's a long, thin park, and we usually go down the hill a bit from the gazebo.

From the 5 Northbound, take the Lake Forest Drive exit.  Turn right off the freeway off-ramp onto Lake Forest Drive.  Stay on Lake Forest for a mile or so and make a left onto Serrano (stop light).  The park will be on your right.  This park is down the street below the Ralph's Shopping Center.   It's a long, thin park, and we usually go down the hill a bit from the gazebo.





Winter Show 

Hamster Show at Griffith Park in Los Angeles (weather permitting, barring a major weather event). Come prepared for a joint hamster show and picnic in the park.  There are shady and sunny areas as well as playground equipment, and restrooms.  Bring a blanket and picnic lunch to enjoy.  You will want to also bring a chair to watch the show since picnic benches are limited and may not allow you to be close enough to see or hear well.

We will be at the Crystal Springs picnic area.  To get there, exit the 5 freeway and go west on Los Feliz Blvd.  Turn right on Crystal Springs Drive.  Continue past the pony rides, past the freeway entrance, and past the Merry Go Round turn off.

You will want to turn right into the park ranger station.  Once you turn in, the ranger station should be on your left and the ball field on your right.  Continue past the ranger station and keep going past the ball field and down the road toward the right to the lower level picnic area.  Look for us there.  Typically we have set up at the far side of the picnic area where there are a number of trees and picnic benches.
