We went later in the afternoon so parking was no problem and there were hardly any crowds. The hiking was incredible. The trails were well taken care of and relatively easy to navigate. Halfway through our hike, we ran into one of the park council members. He welcomed us to the park and shared some helpful hints and information on... More

My friends and I drove uphill close to Hollywood sign. We got there around 6pm it was slight haze not clearly see the sign - Hollywood due sunset. Lovely place and pretty sighting over LA.

Need a parking space near the Park cause the Park is a long climb from where you can park. Overall when you reached the top there was a good view of LA so I think its worth the effort of climbing up and down.

MLK weekend was not a brilliant move as the Griffith was mobbed and parking difficult. That said, a late afternoon visit and early evening vista of LA's lights glowing in all directions is simply wonderful. The exhibits are captivating and informative. The location is superb and, unreal, it is free.

Visit this awesome place if you are in the vicinity of Los Angeles and/or Hollywood. There you will find the Griffith Observatory. This place is up in the hills of Griffith Park adjacent to Hollywood. In the hills of this park is where you will find the world famous Hollywood sign. Visit and enjoy nature within the city of angels.... More

We arrived at 9am on a Saturday morning. It was very crowded and hard to find parking. Depending upon where you go in the park, there are wonderful, wide, well-traveled hiking trails (which lead you up to the scenic views), tennis courts, a golf course, a petting zoo and train for little ones, and of course, the observatory. I would... More

Griffith Park is LA at it's best. The drive up to the park is so scenic. Nearby neighborhoods are ritzy; I've seen a number of filming crews at work in the area. Parking can be hectic. Try to find a spot in the main lot because the alternative is parking on the side of the windy, hilly road. The observatory... More

It is a huge park. People do get lost. But you have a large variety of activities, Horseback riding, golf, hiking, ball fields, playgrounds, old train exhibit, a zoo, and CRIME. Do yourself a favor, go during daylight.

We came to the Griffith Park just to see the view over Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign - we were not disappointed! It's a good idea to park the car further down the hill, walking up to the park is a good experience in it self and if you got the time, then take a hiking trip to the... More

It's free. There are hiking trails, golf courses, the Observatory, and the best view in the city. And, for some reason, Wi-fi. Take a day with a picnic lunch and go up the mountain. It'll be a good change from all the running around, and you can get just as good a pic of the Hollywood sign.
