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

Gorgeous location in the foothills, plenty of parking, fine art classrooms downstairs, and small first class art library upstairs. There is a Japanese garden and a separate historic house with tours, inside the park. Next to the parking lot is the trail head for a beautiful urban hiking trail. This park is being renovated so check to be sure you... More

The Brand Park is a great city park. The hiking trail behind the library is an awesome trail worth checking out. Baseball fields, plastic park for the kiddies. Its always jamming with people enjoying the park.
