This is a must see park. The landscape is fab, the view of the city is even better when you take a hike in the mountains just north of the library. You simply must see this to believe it. The library is currently being renovated, however, it is one of the great wonders of Glendale, CA.

If you live in Glendale and have never visited Brand Park, you are really missing out. There is a lot of history associated with the main building as it is a mansion that was owned by the prominent family of Glendale and converted to a music library. Years ago I went to check out music records, now they have film (in the form of videos). However, my recent trips have been just to enjoy the park facilities adjoining the library. Be sure to see the Doctor's House (check as the hours are limited), a house from the Victorian era and the Japanese Tea House. During Jan. or Feb. the city of Glendale usually brings in tons of snow for the kids to play in. Also, there are trails behind the library where you can hike or mountain bike. In addition, there are meeting rooms that you can rent for an event. Bottom line...there is something for everyone!

Gorgeous location in the foothills, plenty of parking, fine art classrooms downstairs, and small first class art library upstairs. There is a Japanese garden and a separate historic house with tours, inside the park. Next to the parking lot is the trail head for a beautiful urban hiking trail. This park is being renovated so check to be sure you have access to everything.

The Brand Park is a great city park. The hiking trail behind the library is an awesome trail worth checking out. Baseball fields, plastic park for the kiddies. Its always jamming with people enjoying the park.
