This is a great park with lots of opportunities for walking and cycling with play areas and other activities for younger children. You will either need a car or to have researched what you want to do here before you set out to get best...More

Griffith Park is a perfect place for a run, walk or hike. Wear the appropriate shoes, pack water and let another know that you’re off on an exclusion. I’ve found that letting little kids run around on the grass is great for some outdoor time....More

Griffith Park is absolutely huge and there is so much to explore. If you have a car there is various parking available but it comes at a price. We saw one for $2 every 15 minutes. If you walk up from Hollywood it may take...More

Griffith park offers a bunch of really cool trails and stuff. It’s a great place to go on a hike or have a picnic. The observatory is close too so you can also stop by if you want to see some cool aliens and stuff....More

Loved all the educational exhibits, shows, scenery and ambiance. What a wonderful observatory! I would definitely go back again as there is so much to see and do. I loved seeing the Tesla coil demonstration.

We tried twice to get up to the Observatory to watch the sunset, but both days we ended up in grid locked traffic and ended up having to walk a fair bit of the way up - no biggie, but we never made it up...More

Went with family on a Sunday afternoon, was patient and found parking at the top. The view of the city & Hollywood sign were great as was the Observatory. Live view of the Sun & some great exhibits.

Nice hiking trails- pretty moderate when it comes to how strenuous they can be. You can start at the bottom and hike all the way to the Observatory. Or you can drive in and have a picnic at many of the picnic tables scattered around....More

We planned to visit the observatory late afternoon. And It became a living trafic hell. When we finally reached the observatory (by car) we just hoped to get out of that hell as quickly as possible. Next time we should consider going to this place,...More

Yes, I actually came in through the south end on my visit and followed a well defined trail up to the observatory. Its an easy to follow path.

Griffith park is massive so I'd recommend using uber/lyft to get around from wherever you are finished to LA Zoo! There are buses that run down Los Feliz blvd but it depends on where you're finishing up in the park!
