Griffith Park Landfill Reborn, LA Doesn't Wait Till Second Date

New, 24 comments

LOS FELIZ: This morning, Councilmember Tom LaBonge dedicated the "revamped and revitalized" Toyon Canyon in Griffith Park--the former landfill site is now a very nice picnic area. The Toyon Canyon Landfill operated from 1957 to 1985; last year, the Bureau of Sanitation started work "to retrofit the site for passive recreation, planting trees and shrubs, installing perimeter fencing to guide hikers and equestrians, and building a small picnic area and horse drinking trough."

LOS ANGELES: Lots and lots of useless information in Match.com's massive study of first dates (why?), but there is one notable piece of info: only 22 percent of singles in the US think it's ok to have sex on the first date, but 52 percent in LA are cool with it. Good job, everyone. [Curbed Inbox]
