“Don't miss Griffith Park”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

A great place to stretch your legs and enjoy the beautiful view of LA. Perfect for tourist pics. And I still get a kick out of seeing it in the background of so many films and commercials - "hey, I've been there!"

“great Place to spend the day”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

As I said in an earlier review, I grew up near the Griffith Park. Used to hike the hills everyday. It still is a great place to spend the day. Many hiking trails, some of them go up the mountain and you can get a beautiful view from the top. Do bring water. It is also a fun place for kids, with plenty to do. Even though we live out of state, when I return to LA I love to visit Griffith Park. On Los Feliz Blvd. you can visit Atwater and by all means go to the Tam O'Shanter for dinner. Been there for years with great prime rib and creamed spinach.

“More than just some grass and trees - it's about hiking”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Most people don't realize that Griffith Park has trails that go to the top of a mountain, and overlook LA. Bring water, because there isn't any once you get past the lower areas.

“A park with everything”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

One can hardly do Griffith Park in one go! There is an excellent zoo on one side which takes a whole day or more and then there is the observatory and planetarium on the other. The planetarium shows are excellent and on the terrace of the observatory, the famous Hollywood sign on the Hollywood hill forms a favorite site for photography. The Greek theatre, the Hollywood bowl are nearby as is a stable where horse riding training is provided. The walk up to the observatory has many trails for trekking though one has to be careful regarding some wild animals like coyotes.
