Neighborhood: Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.

After completing the Mulholland Drive expedition, returned to Beverly Hills, and went looking for a place to relax for a few hours prior to the long drive home. Located the Will Rogers Memorial Park on Sunset Boulevard, just across the street from the Beverly Hills Hotel. This small triangle shaped 5-acre public park was constructed in 1912 and opened in 1915 and has provided a refuge to visitors and residents with a place to relax after a stressful day shopping or exploring the wonders of Beverly Hills. This small park has a rose garden, numerous palm and dragon trees and several miles of winding paved paths as well as restroom facilities. The Margaret J. Anderson Fountain sits in the middle of a lily pond located in the center of the park. Circular pond is full of turtles and colorful koi fish. Lots of shade trees and benches throughout the park. Ideal for just sitting and relaxing. Great location for a picnic with family or friends. Enjoyed a leisurely 1½ hours walk around and observing the wonders of this remarkable park. If you are tired of window shopping, or just need a place to relax, strongly recommend a visit to the Will Rogers Memorial Park.

Feels like one of the magical parks you find in Europe. Small, but very well-maintained...this space is relaxing and comparatively quiet. Recommend it for a picnic or some quiet reflection

Will Rogers who perished in a small plane in Alaska was one of America's most beloved celebrities as it suffered through its most difficult period between the Roaring 20's and Second World War during the heart of The Great Depression and Dust Bowl.

His unique humor and infectious smile brought comfort and smiles to millions and millions of Americans who had little else to smile about.

Located in Pacific Palisades near the western end of Sunset Boulevard the park is lush and a great escape from the craziness of the City of Angeles.

Here one can watch an exciting polo match or simply enjoy an impromptu picnic and just "chill out."

We stayed in the Beverley Hills Hotel opposite so a trip to the infamous restroom was a must What a terrible toilet However the park is really a nice oasis The pond in the middle with the fish and turtles makes it a very relaxing place to be

Across from the Beverly shills Hotel, the big pink behemoth, sits this lovely little park. Many commercials and movies are filmed here. But it's hard to access, limited parking and pretty small. If you are close by it is worth a stop for the decamp des old trees and lovely well maintained apgarden. Plenty of walking paths and sitting. It's about a 20 minute visit, and you are done. Maybe combine with a lunch at the Apollo Lounge if you want to splurge....and walk a little of lunch off by heading across the street.

Some of the reviews confuse the Beverly Hills Will Rogers Memorial Park with the Will Rogers State Park in Pacific Palisades.

The pretty little Will Rogers Memorial Park on 9650 Sunset Blvd. in Beverly Hills is not the same 187 acre Will Rogers State Park in Pacific Palisades/Santa Monica Mountains with the historic Will Rogers home, polo field, and hiking trails overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The Will Rogers Memorial Park is a very small, triangular-shaped park, also on Sunset Boulevard (in Beverly Hills) with limited parking. Originally named Sunset Park, the park was renamed Will Rogers Memorial Park in 1952. Will Rogers, actor/humorist/political commentator, was the first honorary mayor of Beverly Hills. Drive west on Santa Monica to the Pacific Ocean and you will be at the Will Rogers State Beach. Drive west on Sunset Boulevard and travel to Pacific Palisades,1501 Will Rogers State Park Road, to visit the Will Rogers State Park. Three very distinct places named after one influential humorist, Will Rogers.

The lush, little (1) Will Rogers Memorial Park in Beverly Hills, lined with palm trees is pretty. However, it bares no resemblance to the (2) Will Rogers State Beach in Santa Monica or the (3) Will Rogers State Park in Pacific Palisades, the latter with its polo field, historic home of Will Rogers and trails overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Highly recommend the three different locations for three very different experiences.

Beautiful park with lots of different areas. There are green lawns for picnicking and hiking trails with views. Will Rogers home has daily tours and is really lovely. You can spend hours exploring the park. Entry is free but parking has a fee. Bring a picnic and water as there isn't any food.

We went on a 2 hour hike on NYE while we were here for the Rose Bowl. Hike was great. Only complaints were that mapps did not seem to agree with the paths. Was also a little freaky when mountain bikes went passed on a narrow path, with one biker thanking us for getting out the way, saying he did not think he could stop.

nestled in the foothills between santa monica and the palisades close the ocean. despite being in the middle of the city is very secluded and has some nice old Will Rogers history from his house to the grounds. besides that, its a great place to hike and see a portion of the local santa monica mountains.

This is a must see little park, There is history, romance, and tranquility here. In the middle of Beverly Hills, yet miles away from urban stress.
