Griffith Park and Griffith Observatory go hand in hand. They are at the same location. Park is magnificent. This is the place to be if you love hiking in the city. We chickened out but the trails looked very enticing.
Observatory is all the way to the top of the hill where you get a direct view of the Hollywood sign and great 360 degree view of Los Angeles.
This is another must stop while visiting LA.

I was told that the "cave" where the Batman TV show filmed the Batmobile coming out of the Batcave was in Griffith Park so we set out to find it. Yep. It is there; tho it is really a tunnel! Not too far of a walk from the parking lot... but you are walking up a hill to get there.
There was a little boy in a Batman costume who came running out of the "cave" while we were there--very cute! But there were people of all ages there.
We walked through the tunnel. On the other side was an area were we were told many scenes were filmed from Western movies... like when you would see a coyote running on the ridge of a mountain!
A man standing next to us asked if we saw the Hollywood Sign from there. We had not. So he showed us that only a few feet from where we were standing we could see the sign close enough to easily take the photo... because this park is in "Hollywood-land."
A fun FUN side trip for families... couples... hikers... everyone who is able to do a little climb or who wants to be adventurous. Pets are welcome here, too.
Go to the bathroom BEFORE you go to the park, tho!

This park is something you cannot miss on your visit to LA. I have been here three times and I never tire of it. It is such a beautiful place to visit at sunset. You can see all the valleys around, see LA for miles. As it gets darker, you can see for miles. It is just breathtaking. Don't miss this.

The park is much more than the great observatory. It is difficult to imagine you are in crowded Los Angeles while in this peaceful setting. You can see the Hollywood sign off in the distance but that is the only reminder of LA. I didn't get to the zoo, but the Brookfield zoo bear Chicago would be tough to beat.

The park is nice and it is free to get in. It wasnt the best place in the world to see, but for Los Angeles, it is a good spot to check out.
