Hand drawn map on linen showing Los Angeles River near the boundary line of Los Angeles City, Solano, Cemetery, Sulphur Ravines, and Chavez Ravine. Map number 922. In 1886, the Stone Quarry Hills (also known as the Rock Quarry Hills) was officially dedicated as Elysian Park, which became a popular recreation area, offering ample picnic grounds, an arboretum, zoological garden, and aviary. In 1962, the Dodger Stadium was established in the same area, sometimes referenced as the Chavez Ravine.
