Carved into the hills above the Hollywood Reservoir's walking paths but below a turnout of sightseeing vans, this grassy field feels like a dog-friendly Shangri-La. You don't have to have four legs to enjoy the scenery, thanks to a small playground, shaded picnic benches and one of the most fantastic views of the Hollywood Sign. Unlike the touristy turnout just up the road, this park stays quiet throughout the day—other than the sound of dogs barking. The verdant retreat is the perfect place to mingle with hills-dwelling pooches, just make sure your dog is leashed (otherwise the park rangers will make sure for you).

One of my favorite parks to bring my Boston terrier to! The views are beautiful and it's so relaxing! Sometimes the park gets a little packed but it's still worth checking out. If you can make it out during the week, I suggest doing that. (Much easier to find parking).


This is a beautiful park. Whether you're looking for a picnic spot, a great place to snap that selfie with the Hollywood Sign or need to take your dog on a walk, Lake Hollywood Park is a great spot to do it. It can be a bit of a drive depending on where you live in LA, but it's worth it.

This is by far the best spot to get a view of the Hollywood Sign. But that's not the only to come here. The views of the Hollywood Hills and Lake Hollywood are fantastic; you'd think you're in an Italian hillside, but maybe that's just because of the vineyard blanketing one of the slopes. You might feel a little bit out of place coming here without a canine friend because of its unofficial designation as a dog park, but don't let that get in the way of a lovely afternoon in the park.


Lake Hollywood Park is the perfect place for Hollywood Sign selfies with out-of-towners.  It's also a great place to bring your dog to get some exercise and enjoy the sun.  I do recommend keeping them on leash to avoid any tickets from park rangers.


What an irresponsible review, actually advising people to break the law by "just making sure your dog is leashed when you hear the park rangers come." This is NOT a dog park. Not even close. The off-leash problem has gotten so out of control that park rangers now come up here several times a day, and they do give fines ... big ones. I live right down the street and have seen them actually round people up and cite them one-by-one. The fine is about $200 per dog. Do yourself and your dog a favor and go to Runyon Canyon or Griffith dog park, where your dogs can run off-leash legally.
