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

A must in LA. You cannot miss this place. Iconic beautiful place. You can see all LA, and the Hollywood sign. Great place for photos .

Hayride closed down due to lightning storm and potential injury/fatality if lightning strikes the metal tractors. Had to be evacuated immediately off the ride before it even started. 0/10 do not recommend. Staff unhelpful with refunds.

This park is really great and something different to visit when in LA. There is a great view of the city but unfortunately we did not have enough time to walk hike to the Hollywood sign. You need about 2 to 3 hours return trip.

Not much to say but this is a big park in the heart of LA. You can trip around, see humanity at its best and worst. Enjoy, be careful. This is for people without yards.
