Enjoy the outdoors at these public and micro-parks

West Hollywood Library
When the West Hollywood Library’s remodel was completed in 2011, the Los Angeles Times called it one of “the most impressive pieces of public architecture to open in Southern California in a decade,” noting that its mismatch of styles and inspirations, ranging from Frank Gehry to Michelangelo, somehow all come together in a way that just works. If you need a little break from the sun, come here to thumb through some books and magazines or grab coffee and a bite in the downstairs cafe. The West Hollywood Park and the Pacific Design Center are next-door.
