There is a small, seasonal creek that runs through the Temescal Farmer’s market.  As far as I can tell, it runs above ground from around Frog Park, under CA-24, down to around 51st St.  It only seems to run in the summer, and kids at the market play poohsticks and splash around in it.  I have found this stream confusing for a while and have a few questions

  • where does it come from?
  • why does flow in summer?
  • is it really safe for children?
