“The Old Reliable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

Need some Exercise? Want to Escape L.A.? Need a bit of Mother Nature? I enter at Riverside and Los Feliz. They have stuff for kids, and the hiking trails that lead to some of the best views.

“Vast and gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

Griffith Park is actually quite sprawling for a park in LA. There are several hiking trails, the observatory, The Greek Theater and other attractions to keep everyone entertained. On any given weekend, you will find tons of runners and families taking advantage of the lush grass and open space.

“A little bit of Nature right in the city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Griffith Park is a beautiful area with many things to do. There's the observatory, which is most definitely worth a visit, but there are also many hiking, biking, picnic, BBQ areas that are very nice. I enjoy the views from the observatory, and I love going hiking in the area or having get-together with friends and BBQ-ing. There's a Merry-Go-Round and a Choo-Choo train and horsie rides for the young ones, and a nice scenic area for adults. I feel relaxed whenever I come here. Oh, and there's a golf course, too! The Greek Theatre, which is my favorite outdoor venue, is also located within Griffith Park. All in all, I find this to be a wonderful place where one can feel like you're outside in nature, even though you're in the city.

“This is a beautiful park, go and see it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

I can't say enough about the many different and wonderful things that this park has to offer! It seems like there is something special around every corner and in every nook and cranny. There is a tiny train, lot's of big trains, a carousel, pony rides, a big zoo, a western museum, a charming little out door cafe and tons of green and shady areas to sit and picnic or play Frisbee or play with the kids on the swings and slides. It's really a treasure.

“Amazing views- watch out for the fog!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

We got there just in time to see the sunset as we walked up the hill from our parking spot. Luckily I stopped along the way to take panoramics & regular pics of the hills and forrested areas. By the time we got to the observatory roof the fog had completely moved in! Everything was veiled in clouds. The building and grounds were still beautiful. I can't imagine how great the view would have been of the cityscape. Very happy I dragged my friend there even with the fog.
