Why locals recommend it
This spot south of Santa Monica Pier is my #1 favorite place to work out. Unlike the muscle beach in Venice, you’ll see more gymnasts and acrobats than body builders—and these people are masters. There’s a ton of equipment, like parallel bars and traveling rings. Sunday from 2pm or so till sunset is the most exciting time to be here. Acrobats have a real history with this spot, and this is time to come see them doing high-level acrobatics and acroyoga.
