De Longpre Park - a "pocket park" in Hollywood a block south of Crossroads of the World (De Longpre Avenue at June Street) where young Rick Nelson, on a break from nearby Hollywood High, wrote "Travelin' Man" on a tree-shaded bench, or so he said.  The Nelson family lived nearby - for forty years at 1822 Camino Palermo.  The odd thing in this park is the two sculptures honoring Rudolph Valentino.  Go figure.  Photographed Thursday, February 2, 2006.

 

Neither of these is Ricky Nelson –
