Sound system is okay. Small stage. The Parking: If there is show going on at the theater, the parking situation can be awful. There is a parking... More

Few Angelenos are familiar with Barnsdall Park. From the commanding views of Hollywood to the Hollyhock House to the Junior Art Center and Park grounds, this is a beautiful place to spend several hours enjoying the sites and learning about an important period in the cultural history of Los Angeles.

Hard to put words to explain this little hideaway refuge that insider los angelesians all know to be a secret treasure. This "park" houses the hollyhock house by frank lloyd wright, built for Alice Barnsdall, then later donated to the city, but the real secret is the haven-like quality it has maintained all these years. At the top of a... More

We were looking for some things to do around Griffith Park before going to a concert at the Greek and read about Barnsdall Art Park. The place was packed-with young people playing Pokémon Go. The art museum was closed, the Frank Lloyd Wright House was closed and the Hollyhock House has an admission fee. We wandered around the nice shady... More

A nice little park on a hill that you can catch a great sunset from, which is what we did in May. Metro: Vermont/Sunset, red line.

Situated on the corner of Hollywood and Vermont in East Hollywood lies this gem of a park. Most people come to this area tend to gravitate towards Griffith Park for the Observatory or the numerous hiking trails.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
