Most tourists aren't aware of "Lake Hollywood Park" given that it's "hidden" in the hills off of Barham Boulevard. Locals "in the know" use the park for jogging or power walking around Lake Hollywood. Great scenery for exercising or quiet time in L.A.

We arrived at 7am to take our iconic shot of the Hollywood sign in the distance. It’s on quite a steep hill so be careful of footing but it’s a lovely drive around that area

It is well worth the drive to come here as there is plenty of parking and the view of the sign from a closer vantage point is great

When I google mapped hollywood sign, it told me and my buddy to go through griffith park which was definitely not ideal. Going through Lake Hollywood Park is definitely the place to get a good shot of the sign. Very easy to drive to, street...More

We found the park while driving around for a spot to view the Hollywood sign. It is a nice place for children to play, to take a stroll and to take photos of the iconic sign. It is not a dog park and your pets...More

Great walk around 3 miles in total round the lake and across the dam where you get good (but not the closest) views of the Hollywood sign. Nice houses around the lake. Very quiet

Easy parking at the side of the road. Small park with space for children and dogs. There is a quick walk up to another viewing point of the sign from the park. On the other side of the road are great views of the city!

This place can get crowded parking-wise. The actual park is pretty small. I parked on a side street after you go down the steep hill and pass the park. There are swings etc for kids and the open field is great for dogs. But really...More

This was a stop on our tour of Hollywood. Beautiful place to take pictures benches to sit on and out of the way of traffic.

Yes, and also you can get a bus, then you have just over a mile walk but you get to see some lovely views and nice houses to look at.

We literally walked for 20 mins (all uphill unfortunately) and anywhere there you can get clear unobstructed views of the sign and great pics.
