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

Park for free. Bathrooms, water fountain, and vending machine available. Walk up past the old doctor's house and keep going. There are scrub jays, warblers, quail, orioles, acorn woodpeckers, hummingbirds, wrens, and more. The walk is uphill, so wear good shoes.

This is a must see park. The landscape is fab, the view of the city is even better when you take a hike in the mountains just north of the library. You simply must see this to believe it. The library is currently being renovated, however, it is one of the great wonders of Glendale, CA.

If you live in Glendale and have never visited Brand Park, you are really missing out. There is a lot of history associated with the main building as it is a mansion that was owned by the prominent family of Glendale and converted to a music library. Years ago I went to check out music records, now they have film... More
