We thoroughly enjoyed our picnic in she shade of the trees near the West entrance to the park. Closely were clean bathrooms and a nice playground for the kids. Further up, the park has great views, but we were so enchanted by the peace and quiet in the middle of the city. I am also very impressed with the number... More

In a clear day being on top of the Griffith Park (Observatory area) is fabulous! A lot of trails to go to and explore. I really like this park.

Huge park. Great for views,hiking,picnics or drive through it. Apparently Walt Disney spent time here thinking of ideas!

Better than I expected. One of those great places with a lot of history. If you want some trivia, they have filmed many movies here including James Dean's "Rebel Without A Cause" and "Terminator" (part 1).

I've lived adjacent to Griffith Park on either side for about 15 years and I have yet to explore all that it has to offer. From the Hollywood side you can park in several residential neighborhoods with trail heads that will take you up to a great view of the basin, observatory or away from anything resembling LA. From the... More

Great place to spend the day, wish we had more time! Parking is free but imagine it could get pretty crowded. The place has different areas to walk around and see views of the city. Part of the building was closed so we were unable to go up to the roof to look out but still amazing views. Wish we... More

After attempting to visit the hollywood sign we saw that the sunset trails were closed. But the park had a member if staff thee to assist and give us information of Griffith park. I wasn't too convicted by this park, but decided to give it a go. Parking was a case of finding a spot and dumping your vehicle, which... More

A very pleasant place to spend an evening watching the sun fade behind the hills. Be sure to pack a picnic and enjoy it on one of the benches available. Restrooms on-site outdoors as you approach the area after the carpark. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes because it can be quite a long walk from where you park your... More

The route we originally wanted to take was closed by the park so we headed up to near the observatory, parked on the road and headed up the many routes around Griffith park. The paths are dirt tracks, appropriate footwear is required. Great views can be seen of the LA basin and surrounding districts. There were many people on the... More

My ultimate LA experience, hikes, smell of local flora, views. Go by dawn, join the mexicans with their dine-ours in the park, contemplate on yourself, ths carzy town or your latest draft-that-will-be-blockbuster-soon. After that you go west-hollywood for drinks and food.
