Th carpark at the top by the Observatory is a great location to photograph LA from a good vantage point, or the Hollywood sign. There are also walking tracks to get closer to the sign if desired. There is good parking and lots of rest rooms.... plus its free. Recommended for the views or to give the kids some fresh... More

You have to start early in the morning while it is not hot and there are not many people out there. Wear sneakers, bring water bottle and camera. Beautiful views of LA.

Although there is a severe drought and the park isn't probably at it's finest, Griffith Park is a lovely place to get away from the craziness of L.A. We visited the park on a few occasions and enjoyed the expansive and peaceful atmosphere. The L.A. Zoo is there but we were somewhat disappointed with that aspect. If you'd like a... More

It is vast. I know that there has been a drought but I felt that this park was lacking flowers. The best kept bit was the golf course, not a place I would go. It had a 1900s carousel in working order but it is in desperate need of restoration. OK for a visit.

Great morning hike. We got there around 10am and had no problem parking. The beginning of our hike was cool enough but make sure to bring water as it quickly heated up since there was minimal shade. Great views of LA!

My partner and I visited the park and did some hiking. It was fantastic and provided great views of the city. Parking was an issue so I'd recommend getting there early. I am certainly going back next time I'm in LA.

Went to see a play by the Independent Shakespeare Company. It's a lovely location, fun for all the family and picnic spots. Enjoy the scenery of the city too whilst you're there.

A great place to stretch your legs and enjoy the beautiful view of LA. Perfect for tourist pics. And I still get a kick out of seeing it in the background of so many films and commercials - "hey, I've been there!"

As I said in an earlier review, I grew up near the Griffith Park. Used to hike the hills everyday. It still is a great place to spend the day. Many hiking trails, some of them go up the mountain and you can get a beautiful view from the top. Do bring water. It is also a fun place for... More
