Went to the top of Griffith Park to look over LA. Beautiful but extremely busy and very warm. Lots of people so very difficult to park. We went swimming in a beautiful outdoor pool in Griffith Park with local people. Only $1 for kids!!!

Covered with cement or concrete. If you like the outdoors and want a break from the concrete jungle take a hike through the park. It is easy to combine with the observatory. Don't forget to bring water.

Nice overall experience, including the lush gardens and unique train ride up to the centre itself. The story behind Mr Getty is unique and interesting. worth a visit.

Was a great way to spend an afternoon, seeing the panoramic view of LA. Perfect for tourists. There's some little walks that we could have gone on, but sadly the sun was setting so we didn't get very far.

Don't not even try to go as a casual hiker any day after 3pm when a concert at the Greek is being held, you will be stuck in traffic forever if you try to go up to the Conservatory. The hiking is very safe and great amount of trails for a Los Angeles outdoor person. Would recommend for a quick... More

This is a cool, interactive place to visit for all ages. There are lots of different experiments to see and participate in, a beautiful park around the observatory, and the Hollywood sign in the backdrop. A great place for a family day.

This is a must-do visit for every Angelino or visitor. Great hiking and views of the city. Actual wilderness in the heart of the city. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and time to enjoy this great park. For a shadier visit, try the Fern Dell area of the park. Enjoy a snack at Trails Café.

Excellent scene on sunset, romantic park and really interesting museum and observatory. Be aware of parking problem in the evening - came in advance or be ready for a long walk.
