I think the movie "La La Land" made this place more famous than before, and it also made me want to see this place. We came in the afternoon. It needed lots of effort to reach the place because we had to walk from the parking site uphill to the site. When we reached the site, it was like a... More

The view was beautiful from every direction. We could see all of Los Angeles, take a great picture with the Hollywood Sign in the background, and enjoy nature. We wanted to go back after dark to view the lights of LA, but did not have time. If you have to choose between going during the day or night, I suggest... More

I wanted to see the sign up close so my husband and I went to Griffith Park. The view of the sign wasn't that great, but still beautiful views of the city. Driving on Los Feliz dr. (looking on the right side streets) near the park we were able to see the sign MUCH BETTER!!!!

We went to find the old abandoned Griffith Zoo which closed in 1966. We found it and it's super creepy and interesting. There's old cages and caves to explore plus hiking. There's graffiti on most things, but it's still cool. We didn't see anyone or anything sketchy, but I'd still be careful.

La La Land didn't miss anything by filming here, this is a true LA Treasure. FREE to the public, many hiking trails along the property but inside, heaven! Pay the few dollars to see the 2 shows...they are wonderful!

I came solo to the park on a beautiful Friday morning and grabbed some quick food from The Trails Cafe in the park before setting off on the hike to the Observatory. Definitely recommend this - it wasn't too bad of a hike, just challenging enough for an amateur hiker like me and the views are spectacular. Lots of great... More

We are nature lovers and while visiting LA we had to see Griffith park. We park by Greek theatre a little below Observatory in Griffith park. Parking places are for free. Then we went to Charlie Turner trail that leads to Mount Hollywood and further to Dante view. There are many various trails in the park, excellent for running, walking,... More

We drove up to the Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park after dark. Took time to walk around and enjoy the amazing views of LA. Well worth the time.

You can enjoy a full day of activities in this very large, yet centrally located park. There are many hiking trails within the park. It also contains Travel Town with a locomotive museum and a small train you can ride around, which young kids love. Inside the park is also the Griffith Observatory and Planetarium, a very worthwhile visit to... More

Walt Disney would go here to dream up new stories of mice and men. He did a great job following through on those imaginations. I go to Griffith Park to dream and write just like Walt and you can feel that magic vibe he was able to tune into. It's a Hollywood thing. This place is a vortex- This place... More
