Griffith Park, Los Angeles Reviews

  • The place is beautiful. At night you get to see a very nice view of the city. If you really want to enjoy all that the observatory has to offer you will need at least 4 hours. Parking is a bit pricey $6 per hour you could pay with either cash or credit. There is also free parking by the Greek Theater as long as there is no event going on. Would not recommend parking there if you have small children as it is quite a walk up hill. But overall is a very nice family friendly place to visit.

  • Do you love nature and civilization at the same time? well, this is a place to experience both at the same time. For goodness sakes, they've got an awesome observatory there! you can't get any closer to civilization than with a tool to look for other civilizations elsewhere in the universe! I love this park and I go there whenever I get a chance... riding my bike through the park is awesome too.

  • Been here many times and it's always a great way to spend the day. Whether you go for the zoo or the observatory or one of the museums, the merry go round or to just find a cool spot to picnic or hike, like the old zoo, you can't go wrong. There's something for everyone. There are playgrounds for the kids hundreds of picnic tables, tons of parking areas (which are all free) and supposedly haunted areas 😱. It's a slice of nature in the middle of a giant metropolis.

  • A true iconic experience. The pendulum clock that I remembered in 1973 is still mesmerizing. The displays were fantastic, and the whole walk though was nirvana. Staff were all knowledgeable, many seemed like Cal Tech PhD candidates. The show in the observatory was very well done. The parking sucks. The gift shop was a little commercial, but the gotta bring in revenue to keep this place going. Highly recommended.

  • One of the best lookouts over the city. Pretty easy access and good view of the Hollywood sign depending on the haze. Inside of the Observatory is also pretty neat. The pendulum clock is interesting along with being able to look through the telescope. We were able to see Jupiter during the day! Definitely a must do if you're in LA.
