Griffith Park is not just a park. As for me, so it's a national reserve, no less. We stayed in this park for about 6 hours. We started from the main entrance and walked to Hollywood Sain (the nearest playground to the sign "Hollywood"), and then to Catherine Koner (one of the places where the sensational "La La Land" was filmed), and then went down to a completely different exit. At the very beginning of the park there are benches, some people go there for a barbecue, rest and enjoy nature.But if you want to see all the beauty this place you have to go uphill. The winding serpentine, of course, complicates the task, but on the other hand, you can always sit down and relax.

could have to walk a bit if its busy, but check parking at the top first. beautiful views of the city and its free ( just pay for parking) lots of interactive exhibits. Great for families. also a great view of the Hollywood sign.

It does not cost you a thing to come here and visit the famous Observatory, a landmark of Los Angeles. So you cannot set your expectations very high, nor you can complain after the visit. We have visited this place at least a dozen times. Finding parking is becoming more and more challenging, last time when we visited the place we could not find anything close so we turned around and went to beach instead.
Lots of people! The observatory itself is not something very impressive, you can actually say it is a little disappointing, not too many things to see inside. But the surroundings are spectacular, you get the best views overlooking the city. It is one of the few places where you can take a very good picture of the Hollywood sign. Many people come here for hiking, the trails are easily accessible and offer you awesome views. Highly recommended for first time visitors!

The park lays above the city and offers many trails to go hiking and exploring the hills. It gives you stunning views overlooking the city and its skyline while being in nature. The amazing surroundings allow you to forget the hustle and bustle of the city.
Great views of the Hollywood Sign!
