“Wildlife”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Coyotes, cougars, bobcats, and a zoo. This huge park is a great source of entertainment in Los Angeles. A beautiful merry-go-round, plenty of picnic areas, and miles of trails - enjoy!

“Beautiful city park.”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

This place is a jewel in LA. This was NOT named after David Wark Griffith, the movie director. Visit Traveltown for fun with small train rides. Take a picnic.

“Can't Miss It”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

This is a huge park and has an area with a merry-go-round, a children's railroad and there are so many perfect picnic spots. I didn't do this, but I say people in one area on horses, so there must be a place to rent horses?

“Great Family Fun on a Budget”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

This is lots of economical entertainment for parents and kids. Great place for a picnic. My kids and I loved Travel Town with its huge display of real antique steam engines and cabooses that anyone can climb on. Also train rides. The Observatory was also an interesting place to visit. This is one of our favorite places.

“A must see if you are in Hollywood”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

The park is a great place to take lunch and sit under a tree at the tables provided, or take a hike up the trail to the Griffith Observatory. If you are a James Dean fan, the observatory is a must see (Rebel Without a Cause was filmed here). While at the observatory, you will get a great view of the Hollywood sign.
