“Good location to view or access Hollywood sign”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Th carpark at the top by the Observatory is a great location to photograph LA from a good vantage point, or the Hollywood sign. There are also walking tracks to get closer to the sign if desired.
There is good parking and lots of rest rooms.... plus its free. Recommended for the views or to give the kids some fresh air !

“Going to Hollywood sign.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

You have to start early in the morning while it is not hot and there are not many people out there. Wear sneakers, bring water bottle and camera. Beautiful views of LA.

“Great retreat in the metropolis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Although there is a severe drought and the park isn't probably at it's finest, Griffith Park is a lovely place to get away from the craziness of L.A. We visited the park on a few occasions and enjoyed the expansive and peaceful atmosphere. The L.A. Zoo is there but we were somewhat disappointed with that aspect. If you'd like a bit of family time to enjoy a picnic and to kick a ball about, head to Griffith Park. It'll make you forget, if only briefly, the hundreds of dollars you're haemorrhaging at the local theme parks and shopping malls.Great hiking opportunities, too!

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

It is vast. I know that there has been a drought but I felt that this park was lacking flowers. The best kept bit was the golf course, not a place I would go. It had a 1900s carousel in working order but it is in desperate need of restoration. OK for a visit.

“Morning Hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Great morning hike. We got there around 10am and had no problem parking. The beginning of our hike was cool enough but make sure to bring water as it quickly heated up since there was minimal shade. Great views of LA!
