Spanning an impressive 4,210 acres, it's easy to get lost in LA's largest public green space, much of which remains unchanged from the days when Native Americans settled here. For more activity-minded folks, there are myriad attractions (Griffith merry-go-round, LA Zoo, the Observatory), plus hiking routes, horseback riding trails and three sets of tennis courts.

I love Griffith Park! Growing up, I went to birthday parties here, and I still think it's a great spot to have outdoor events, parties, picnics, reunions and more. Hiking is a lot of fun here, and it's not too hard. You can also ride horses, and there's just so much to explore! If you like nature and the great outdoors, I recommend a stop by Griffith Park for sure!

Griffith Park is one of my most favorite places to bring people that visit LA! It's a great place to hike and see the city.

Write a review...Griffith Park is a great place to go hiking, but I've also wandered around the park on horseback. There's just so much to do here, it's truly an LA treasure!

Griffith Park truly is an absolute gem and one of the best parks Los Angeles has to offer. I always make a point of bringing my out of town friends here when they come to visit. The drive up from Vermont is gorgeous and the hikes give you some of the best vantage points you can find in the city. There are also fantastic lawns to relax on and shaded groves to stroll through. The park itself is massive and so there's always something new to explore.

A beautiful park with a decent hike up to the Observatorywith wonderful views of LA, The park is very clear and well maintained - the lack of Mountain Lions & Rattlesnakes was also a bonus.
