A Beautiful Oasis in the Midst of Los Angeles

Griffith Park is great for hiking, picnicking and visiting the Griffith Observatory. We usually take our out-of-state visitors here.

Make sure you get to see the Hollywood sign from here (Which must be done during the day) and the city lights at night!! So I would suggest getting there at twilight and watching the sun go down. Parking will be at a minimum, be patient. In the evening the spaces will clear at the top.

We planned a wedding in Griffith Park (at the Old Zoo, very scenic) but it was interrupted by the Zombie Apocalypse. Really! The overnight horror camp out was right where we planned the wedding with the full on blood bath where we planned the ceremony! You can not pay for a better wedding story. We moved to another lovely place... More

The amount of space in Griffith Park was bewildering. It was a great drive through it and an awesome place to explore and take in the sights.

Loved hiking the trails around the park and having a ride on the nostalgic carousel. I would highly recommend having markers or signs up on the trails for direction as it is easy to get lost or become disoriented as to in what direction to go!

There is so much you can do at Griffith Park. It has the zoo, horses, Autry museum, hiking trails, and my kids favorite -an old school carousel. Plan your day and arrive early. Take food and drinks, have a picnic. Or enjoy several hiking trails from beginners to experienced hikers. There's even an equestrian center where you can ride horses... More

Our first day in LA was to Griffith Park and what a site to behold! From the ever winding road that allowed one to view this magnificent site with its breath taking scenery and trails is totally awesome. I was thrown back into many of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch novels in the atmospehere of this beautiful and historic park. You... More

What a great little respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The trails are pretty, albeit dusty in some areas. Many dogs being walked and couples taking a stroll. I spent about an hour walking around the area and found it peaceful. I never walked high enough up to reach the observatory but I'd already been there the... More

Such a great place for a hike or stroll. There are designated areas for bikes and pedestrians which is really great!
