Tree houses aren’t just for Bart Simpson and the Little Rascals. The Treehouse for All at Torrance’s Wilson Park is for everyone (though it’s especially popular with toddlers on the go and teenagers from nearby Torrance High School looking for a stealthy place to make out). Dedicated in 2006, the 2,500-square-foot wooden structure is California’s first universally accessible tree house in a public space, according to the Annenberg Foundation, which funded it. It offers winding paths, whimsical roof lines and lots of quiet corners for relaxing (or making out). It also offers views of the expansive public park, which houses basketball courts, a baseball diamond, a running track, a roller-hockey rink and a duck pond. The park also is home to the Dee Hardison Sports Center, named for one of the city’s former mayors; it hosts youth sports programs, a weekly farmers market and an old-fashioned Fourth of July festival. 2200 Crenshaw Blvd., Torrance. (310) 618-2930. —Christine Pelisek
