Parks and nature in Los Feliz, Los Angeles

Top parks

Park
“Pro-tip: For one of the best sunsets in Hollywood, this is your spot. Take a tour of famous Hollyhock House - open certain days of the week - the original house on this property built by Frank Lloyd Wright for heiress Alice Barnsdall and her young daughter), or just bring a picnic and a cold one to catch the sunset on the grassy hill overlooking the city. For breezy, casual afternoon, this spot is perfect for everyone. All are welcome, always free.”

“In Griffith Park, the Fern Dell nature trail is scenic & easy. Connect to the Oberservatory trail for a more moderate/difficult hike. Enjoy a spectacular views of the Griffith Observatory and great people watching the entire way up.”

Park
“At the top of Mount Hollywood, 360-degree views of everything from the Verdugo Mountains to the Pacific Ocean (on a rare, smog-free day) offer a bird’s-eye crash course on L.A. geography.  It’s an ideal vantage point for checking out sweeping views of the Los Angeles basin, the edge of the San Fernando Valley, the hazy hills to the west, the skyline of Downtown Los Angeles with the Observatory in the foreground, and the money shot: a close-up of the Hollywood sign Hours: From 5am-10:30pm. Hiking trails close at sunset. Parking: Snag a spot in the lot next to the Griffith Observatory. If that lot is too hectic, look for street parking along Observatory Avenue. Length: ~3 miles Time: 90 mins”
