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.

Very neat place. Great views of LA and the Hollywood sign. If you are into photography, this is a cool place to watch the sunset. We paid for the show and it was worth every penny. What is most cool about it is it is narrated live. Keep in mind that there is a fee for the show, but the... More

I have hiked, strolled, and rambled around here but it is not as safe as it used to be at night any more. Weekends get to be a little too wild at night. Do visit with many other friends or relatives if you come at night. The view is always great when there are no fires. Day or night views... More

Our family tour stopped at the Griffith Park Headquarters where we learned about the history of the Park. Our Great-Great Uncle, Griffith J. Griffith donated the park to the city of Los Angeles in 1898 and the center shows all about the park. Very worthwhile stop and a good place to start if you go to the park.

Too often the park itself is overlooked by the focus on the zoo and the observatory. There are forests and gardens, miles of hiking, of riding, and fabulous views of LA. Bring good walking shoes and a special friend
