This has to be the best photo opportunity for the Hollywood sign. The streets may give your passengers motion sickness as they twist and turn all the way up and all the way down. There is a good deal of parking as it seems not many people know of or don't want to venture that far off the beaten path.

I am an Angeleno and routinely walk around the Lake Hollywood reservoir. I believe this is one of the hidden gems of LA! It's just over 3 miles around, and you enjoy the views of the Hollywood Sign and hills, downtown Hollywood and beyond, a gorgeous reservoir/lake, and wildlife. The dam was commissioned by William Mulhulland, a water pioneer in... More

It must be rather difficult to live up here. First, the roads are very steep and winding. Second, there are tourists and photo takers around all day. It has a great view of both the Hollywood sign and downtown LA skyline (and smog). When we visited it was too hot for any dogs to be playing in the dog park... More

I followed some internet hints that said that was a nice place for jogging. It was indeed. Nice reservoir and a fancy neighborhood. Very quiet and flat place to run. No toilets, no shops, no food. Go, run or walk and leave.

This is one of the better places for a picture of the Hollywood Sign. The park isn't spectacular or anything. Small park in a residential neighborhood.

The drive to this park is a nice drive as you go into the Hollywood Hills. You pass beautiful mansions and eventually come to the park area. Parking is easy and wasn't crowded when we went. The park is well maintained and there are good overlook areas for the perfect Hollywood Sign Photo.

It's a really nice park and if You have dog it must be one of the coolest places on earth to walk Your dog out. The sign it self is just looking down wards to the park. On my opinion it's the best place to see the Hollywood sigh.

This is the perfect spot for that classic must-have tourist photo! There's a cute little park with lots of pups running around, but if you continue up the road just a bit, you get a vantage point above the park with just the right view. It wasn't too crowded when we went in the morning. Highly recommend!

It's a very nice picnic park, with the famous Hollywood sign behind it, nice pic opportunity but if there is any road work, be prepared to take lengthy detours...

There are lots of parks like this; nothing makes it special, besides the big letters on HOLLYWOOD hill. In fact, in the letters, there is nothing special, just letters that are often on TV. Many believe it's a good idea to be photographed on their background.
