Photo: Diane Edwardson, August 2003. It's the curve north of India Street. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
If you look closely at both photos, the hills hidden behind the trees in the far background are Griffith Park.
The Corralitas Red Car Property was a private right-of-way through Silver Lake (Los Angeles) for the Pacific Electric interurban streetcar. The “Big Red Cars” ran until 1955 when the Glendale Line was decommissioned for freeway construction. For almost 40 years, a series of developers tried and failed to develop the Corralitas Red Car Property.
It's not a park, it just looks like one.
