Nice to come here before sunset to take beautiful view of LA. But be ready to pay 8 dollars for 1 hour parking. 1 hour is not enough though to enjoy the Park and Observatory.

Parking was very hellish but once out it was pretty, hard to see during peak smog times I would guess but midday it is not too bad.

My friends and I do some hikes here from time to time. Be careful at night considering we had to fight off some Coyotes which was way too similar to Liam Neeson in the Grey for our liking. However, the view is always worth it...More

For one night we wanted to see Los Angeles from above. We were thinking about a rooftop bar, but coming to this park was the better decision. With a breathtaking lookout over the skyscrapers and lights in the night, without too much noise, it was...More

We visited at day time. Though it was foggy but the LA city view was awesome. I believe the night view of the city from this point should be more beautiful and I'll definitely back for that.

We were surprised by how cool the show was. After a few margarita's down the street we came here and had a blast - just chilled out in our seat and had a great time
