This little slice of nature is an important respite form the craziness of LA. I've known dear, bears, and even mountain lions to cross through the park. Fantastic place to visit to make sure you learn to like LA.

Just like the observatory, depending on the time you arrive, be prepared for some uphill walking, as the parking will probably the full. But still for sure, it is worth the awesome view!

Beautiful huge park just off the highway. Free parking unless you drive up to the Observatory where you must pay a parking fee and walk. Antique restored merry go round with snack bar and limited souvenir stand. Washroom facilities. Pony and mid size horse rentals...More

Early in the morning, the crowds are small, the air is clear, and the views of Los Angeles are spectacular.
