“luscious green in Los Angeles”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

When I lived in London, I always loved visiting the parks. If you are close to Los Feliz, you have this beauty in the backyard. Griffith park has something for everyone from hikes to horseback rides and even an Observatory and a Hollywood sign.

Another definite must see, so unique in it's variety and location!

“Panoramic views”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Worth visitng for the Panoramic views across Los Angeles and beyond. This really helps you appreciate the scale of the city and the surrounding hills.
Plenty of good easy walks and, although it is still fairly busy, a good place to easily escape the hustle and bustle of LA for a few hours.

“Huge crowds, but worth it”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Be prepared to park far away and hike up to the Observatory. Beautiful views from the top plus you can see the Hollywood sign!

“Avoid the weekend afternoons!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We drove up to the Observatory on a Sunday afternoon in August. We wanted to photograph the views, which were amazing.
Unfortunately, the car parks were full and the overflow parking snaked for miles around the twisty hills, making driving and looking for a parking space very stressful.
Eventually, we did find somewhere to park, but it was miles away from the observatory.

“Amazing views”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Griffith Park has spectacular views of LA and surrounding areas. You really have to drive to get here as it is isolated from public transport but with free parking and a guaranteed hike.
I love the night view - with the shimmering city lights and lit up Hollywood sign. Great area to explore, very hilly!
