In order to get to lake Hollywood park you have to drive up a very narrow and winding road. We went on a Friday morning around 11 am and there were only a handful of people. You will need to park your car on a steep hill. This park allows dogs so be careful of dog poop. If you keep... More

Avoid this location because the neighborhood is unfriendly and there is no parking. There are always Police and Rangers present, and traffic officers issue tickets for anything. Go to Mount Hollywood Drive, or Runyon Park for a good experience.

If you like that sort of thing, this is the park for you. Not a place for kids. The off-leash rules, parking are completely unenforced and it's overflowing with smoking tourists. Already had a fire and kid's bitten there. Residents avoid it.

By far the best place to see and take pictures of the Hollywood sign, Its a nice drive up to the park, and the park itself is well maintained, and a great place to bring your pets. Traffic wasn't an issue for me, even on the weekend, there was still plenty of parking on the side of the road by... More

I have been to Hollywood multiple times and never got close to the sign. Based on reviews I choose the park and it was well worth drive. Amazing park with lots of green space all within view of the sign. Across the street from the park, overs awesome views of Lake Hollywood and Hollywood in the distance (see photos). If... More

Taking the walk around the beautiful and incredibly well located Lake Hollywood reservoir is one of my favorite things to do in LA. It can be reached by the Hollywood side (winding streets and smallish parking area), as well as the San Fernando Valley side (winding streets, loads of parking), and takes you on a flat walk around two lakes...

If you want the best view of the sign for pics, etc, this is the spot. Also, the loop around Lake Hollywood is so nice and peaceful in the evenings before sunset. The huge pine trees and the wildlife make it feel less desert like and more lush. Hidden gem of a location. The homes up the hill have really... More

If you are like us and want to sign the Hollywood sign without hiking up a mountain, then this is the place to go, we went to look out points A & B and both were closed, so went here instead. Long steep hi on the way up but well worth it & looking in the other direction, great views... More

Hiking up to see the Hollywood sign turned out to be even better than I anticipated. The hills are pretty steep and the whole hike is pretty much a continuous ascend with very few flat areas. The are no signs to indicate the right way but if you keep going in the direction of the sign you won't miss it.... More

Especially driving up to the sign, you get extremely close to the sign, pretty much right up in your face close. The park wasn't all that crowded, so it wasn't like you were waiting behind a big crowd of people to see the sign. I saw some people with their dogs or just spending time in the park. My fiance...
