Great for walking dogs, hiking, viewing the city from the Observatory, looking at the Hollywood sign, playing golf, eating at the Trails inn which has great food and you can sit outside with your computer and look at the trees.

Always a great place to go. Love to hike there or bring a picnic with friends. I even like the drive living here in LA.

Sadly the day we went the observatory itself was closed (Monday) but the amazing views of LA and the Hollywood sign were well worth the drive. Be warned though, even though the observatory was closed, parking and traffic was a bit manic, so I can only imagine what it was like on days the observatory is open. Parking is time... More

As a visitor from outside LA, didn't find much to do here. Probably great for the local residents of LA.

An amazing park in the middle of the city with great hiking tails and other amenities for families. There are parks, train rides, the LA Zoo, and a cafe.

Griffith Park is different than most big city parks in that it has many areas that are natural/rustic without being beautifully, artificially landscaped. If you are looking for something like New York's Central Park this is not it. There are many, many different activities including: an area for pony rides, small trains, big trains, picnics, Fern Del which is a... More

I am a hiker and always looking for a good trail. Griffith Park has many to offer and each with amazing views. Some are longer than other so do your research and determine how much time you want to spend there. You will be for a great surprise!

The park is great with many great things to do. However everytime we went it was almost impossible to park and there is no real quite on the trails. There were always people and many seem to lack basic manners. Go during the week if you can.

Gorgeous and peaceful spot in the middle of a big city, been going there for over 30 years to hike, have picnics, visit the zoo, the Observatory and to ride on the antique carousel, which is magical.
