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

Definitely one of my favorite places in Los Angeles. There's tons of trails for every skill level and it's big enough that it feels like you're away from the city without having to go far. The trails have great views and there's always fun events...More

This was quite a hike but well worth it. Pack a good amount of water and a hat! The trail is mostly dirt until you reach the road that takes you to the back of the Hollywood sign. The views throughout the hike are beautiful....More

Most amazing view of LA from balconies and terraces. Watch planets, stars and satellites with telescope and explained entirely by experts. Take time to attend at least one presentation. Visit Leonard Nimoy theater. Interact, touch, experience science by yourself and the kids will love you!!!

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.
