Reviewed March 15, 2013

Don't visit LA without visiting the top of the park where the observatory is. The views are outstanding and although we didn't have time to go in to the observatory just looking at the views form the car park is worth a visit.

“Lots to do!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great observatory with very reasonable star gazing shows and a fabulous view of the city by day or night. Horseback riding over the hill. A wonderful Zoo, lots of great animals that look very happy in the climate. And a little train for the wee ones to ride. What more could you want?

“Fun!!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

If you go to LA, and you stay on Hollywood you have to go to the Griffith Park, it is so peaceful, quiet and nice! - well, if you want to get out of the big LA noise!

“First Visit”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Was able to get lots of photos around the observatory, but it was closed so could not visit. May be with more funding it can stay open more hours.
