“We love Griffith Park!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

There is so much to do here. Usually we l hike, there are trails for all levels. (Sometimes we go with the Sierra Club) We love the zoo. Travel Town and LA Live Steamers are fun for train enthusiasts. Many happy memories of taking the kids on the train ride and ponies near the southern entrance.

“Great way to watch an eclipse!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Large observatory at the top of Griffith Park. Wonderful views with great hiking trails nearby. Bring a picnic and watch an eclipse with observatory staff making helpful commentary.

“The largest urban park in the US”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Griffith Park seems to go on forever - so much to do. Picnic, visit the Autry Museum, hike, see the Observatory, catch a concert at the Greek Theatre - there are endless wonders at Griffith Park!!!

“Do your home work”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

There are so many aspects to the park you really need to do some research first. Especially if you are from out of town. There doesn't seem to be a single source of ALL information about the zoo, the travel museum, the model trains, the horse riding and kids pony's and the carousel; so dig around. You can easily take a family here 3 times in a week and see completely different things each time. Then add on the exploring, hiking and picnics. Some attractions can get busy so go early. Zoo is unbearably hot at the height of the summer so duck into the Gene Autry Museum as a cool off. Its all good and a great alternative to the screaming and lousy food at the theme parks or the buzz of the city.

“An iconic LA gem for adults and kids”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

You cannot beat the setting and the building has so much history. All this combined with the significant upgrades make this a fun way to spend an afternoon with the whole family. Try to pick a clear day to visit as the views are amazing.
