The park is great, very well mantained and plenty of people to help you to get around. It is very croweded during the day but we were lucky getting a park space by arriving early in the morning. The observatory is not to be missed!

This is a huge park above LA. Fantastic view of LA and areas. Hint - even if parking lot signs are full -drive up (the parking lot has high turnover) so never saw anyone not get a parking spot. Great place to just look over...More

Huge park with plenty to see and do, especially extensive network of hike trails is a highlight. Some famous attractions are within premises of this park too, Hollywood sign and Griffith observatory.

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....More
