In the event that you like that kind of thing, this is the recreation center for you. Not a place for kids. The off-chain rules, stopping are totally unenforced and it's flooding with smoking vacationers. As of now had a fire and child's chomped there....More

Great close up view of the Hollywood sign. Much better view of it than at the observatory. You'll see all the cars parked going up the hill. Follow the crowds.

We wanted to see the Hollywood sign and tried to go to Griffith Park Observatory but they were having an event and traffic/parking was a nightmare. We opted for this and it was awesome. Families, dogs, and picnics galore! If you want to have the...More

This is by far the best place to get a view and a good selfie with the Hollywood sign. It is a bit of a strain on the transmission driving up to the park but well worth it. It's best to get there early because...More

The park is always open, there aren't any closed gates. so you can visit it any time of the day. Parking may be an issue during peak hours in day time but you can find a slot little far if not close by.
