I always find myself walking to and around this area when I am in Glendale visiting my daughter. When she first told me a few years ago she was moving to Glendale I told her I could not understand why. I soon found out this is a lovely community with great parks, quaint homes, fantastic restaurants, and near so many... More

This is a little hidden gem in Glendale. If you like or love hiking and are around the area; this is a good place to stop and find from easy to strenuous hike routes. This park offers a baseball field, bathrooms, children play area, benches, a library, Japanese garden, and a museum(The Doctor's House). Many locals come and have picnics... More

We went to Brand Park to hike. It has great fire trails that are wide and easy to traverse. It is pretty straight up and then straight down. Great views of downtown LA and even the reflection of the ocean on a clear day after about a 30 minute hike. Enjoy!

This is a great Park but it is also so much more. Along with the grassy lawns to lounge and play on,there are plenty of other ways to enjoy this park. The Brand Library is newly remodeled and is a great place to see the art displays and film and music collections. There is a Japanese Tea House and garden,... More

This is actually 'The Brand Library and Art Center." It's surprising that Glendale has this wonderful library. It is very heavy on the arts collection and tons of books on art, lots of movies and audio recordings. When I visit my daughter we go here and are amazed at the beautiful library building and the Japanese Garden next door. This... More

This park is quite lovely, intimate and has a few things to do. There is a Chinese Meditative Garden, some wonderful back trails. Its a fantastic day place to go and the library is architecturally stunning.

Plenty of room for sports, picnics or to just hang out. The Library on the grounds is an attraction in itself. A few good trails of varying difficulty can be found to the left rear of the park. With good views (on clear days).

If you are in Glendale on a sunny day this small park, art museum, Library, Japanese Garden and tea house are a great place to spend an hour or two. There is also a Doctors house which can be visited on Sundays and it's architecture is east lake Victorian style from about the 1880's. A wonderful place for a short... More
