Beautiful park with amazing views of LA and the Hollywood sign. Arrive early if you want to catch a sunset because it fills up quickly. Don’t bother Peking at the top as it is almost impossible to find a spot. The observatory is free and has a few very cool exhibits. The hike up is not too steep and quite enjoyable.

Awesome! A must do if you are in LA. Many interesting things to see, and the sunset there is amazing. Only downside is parking. The observatory parking lot is very small, and they charge you 10 dollars each hour for parking outside by the road.

Go easy on me...Adele performed right here. It was so nice to see my first Sun Dial, see the orbits of different planets. The observatory was closed but views are fantastic. You can see the Hollywood sign. Parking fees has to be paid $20. Everything was smooth, there were people guiding the traffic.
Another location to NOT MISS when in LA. The grass is so green. There us hiking trails as well for hiking/jogging.

Beautiful!!! Want to spend quality time with friends or family?

With over 4,300 acres of gorgeous natural green space, Griffith Park is one of Los Angeles’ best attractions. It is the largest public park in the US, and boasts a huge variety of exciting activities, sights, and attractions, with every single member of the family catered for, from youngest to oldest.

Bordered by the LA River to the north and east and the Hollywood Hills to the west. To the south is the epic landscape of Beachwood Canyon and the park is one of the most picturesque spots that the City of Angels has to offer. The view is one of its best features, with a stunning panorama offering a bird’s-eye vista of pretty much the entire city.

It’s a wonderful place to get out of the hustle and bustle of LA life, take a breath, and get back to nature!

We parked up front on a Saturday afternoon. Only four dollars an hour! Which is totally worth it because the observatory is free. You have to pay to park down the hill as well. I know there's a free lot but not sure where or how far you'll have to walk.
The observatory has two upstairs wings to explore and learn about space and light. The Tesla coil goes off about every hour 12:20 p.m., 1:20 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 3:50 p.m., 4:50 p.m., 5:50 p.m., 7:20 p.m., 8:20 p.m., 9:30 p.m.)
And downstairs is dedicated to the planets.
Outside you can find iconic views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign.

Griffith Park is a beautiful area. The drive includes gorgeous homes and scenic nature. I specifically went to see the observatory and wasn't disappointed. There are some minor issues currently, including the tesla coil and other various attractions being out of order when I went. There are plenty of hand sanitizing stations around all the attractions and they provide free masks. The observatory requires vaccination cards and you're not allowed to take in any food or drinks.

I would also like to comment on the parking. There are very few disabled parking spots and the signs are a bit confusing. There's lower parking that requires a lot of walking. It's very hard to turn around in that area as the road leads down the mountain. The upper parking is better but costs $10 per hour currently.

Overall I had a wonderful time with my friends and enjoyed taking photos and interacting with the displays. I only wish some of the bigger attractions were in working conditions. Better disabled parking directions would be appreciated too.

It's always a pleasure to visit this place with out of town guests. There's something for everybody! For fitness and hiking enthusiasts, this place offers opportunities for both. For science enthusiasts like my 13-year old, this is a place to explore and get an introduction about the heavens and some celestial bodies. For movie enthusiasts like myself, the place took me back to memories of a classic James Dean flick I watched on video tape with my folks. Beautiful views, a challenging trail, a chance to engage your inner science nerd to learn and explore. A must check out LA destination for sure.

Parking is a nightmare and you will find all of LA hanging out here during sunset. Great views if you are lucky to miss the fog.

The observatory is closed most week days so couldn't make it in there but it's supposedly good based on reviews from friends. If you can find parking, worth the visit.

This is where Angelenos who say they like hiking go to stretch their legs. The park is full of heart pumping fire roads that require bringing lots of water and heat preparation. Located near the LA zoo, train town, an old yet loud carousel, a kids play park, and more, this place can be fun. It's even host to a little nature, including the famous mountain lion P22. (Don't worry, he's not interested in us, only other easier snacks, like koalas.)

I gave this park five stars for the spectacular views. Otherwise it's a bit crowded for my taste.
