The tour is only given at certain times but it is well worth the wait as Will Roger's led a very unique life and was someone to respect. House and grounds were also interesting but the tour makes it special.

Tour guide very friendly and well informed. Property is well restored and visitor friendly. Parking is abundant and easy to use. Car friendly. Film should not be missed. Signs for finding its location could be improved.

Took the dog for a ramble at the park on Sunday morning, easy to negotiate trails and multiple spots to rest and take in the great views of Santa Monica and Downtown LA.

A wonderful place close to Sunset Blvd. Great hiking here and the views are stunning. A camera is a must because you see L.A., the ocean, mountains and more from high up. This is a whole day thing so plan for that. Don't confuse this...More
