"The 160-acre Exposition Park in Los Angeles is a Beaux Arts-style park, home to iconic cultural institutions. The park originated as a private agricultural fairground, passed into public ownership in 1885, and was officially dedicated on the day after Mulholland brought Owens Valley water to L.A. in 1913. The Rose Garden-the most recognizable and heavily used space in the park-is surrounded by the "City Beautiful" quad of USC, the Natural History Museum, the California Science Center and the former National Guard Armory (now part of a science charter school)."
