Pepperdine University Park in Malibu
There’s an atypical site of forever green carpeted landscape overlooking the Malibu cliffs over the Pacific Ocean along Pacific Coast highway. What is this place? Why is it so unusual?
Well, for the majority of the year Southern California landscape looks like a burned out desert.
The images you’ll find on internet of California simply don’t correlate with the reality. Southern California is a very dry place, only a few tropical plants can tolerate these harsh climatic conditions. Thus seeing this garden of Eden in a part of California where water is sparse is a bit odd yet very refreshing.
Unordinary Pepperdine University Alumni park &
Waves of Flags Display
A perfect place to make a quick stop while exploring Malibu. The place just as tranquil as it is vibrant with the unnatural greenery.
The University’s Alumni Park is the most frequently requested campus filming location by production companies due to its expansive grass-meets-sky horizon line — a rarity in the southland!
It’s 26 acres of green lawn and trees front the University’s private property along Malibu Canyon Road and Pacific Coast Highway. On paper, Alumni Park is divided into nine sections and each is reservable.
One of the most impressive times to see the lawn is during the annual Waves of Flags Display.
Pepperdine to Honor 9/11 Victims with Waves of Flags Display
Every years the University props a field of American flags in solidarity with the East Coast following the events of 9/11.
We had an opportunity to visit the campus during one of thoese displays. A trully touching experience.
