Van Nuys Sherman Oaks Walking/Running Path

We all have easy access to a wonderful resource in the middle of our local Sherman Oaks neighborhood.  The VNSO park boasts a great path that cuts thru the middle of the park or goes around the perimiter.  It has been well market and measured.  The surface is nicely maintained and level.  It is a great way to get outside and be amongst many of our freinds and neighbors.

A short Lap is about 1/2 Mile

A Full Lap around the entire route is about 1.3 miles
