    If you haven’t yet explored the old cages and stone caves of the abandoned Griffith Park Zoo, it’s time to pack your picnic and head to the SW corner of Griffith Park, just past the merry-go-round. Read more

    It's fun to check out the old Zoo. It's even better when you pack a lunch & bring silly animal masks to take photos in. We bought our masks at Ozzie Dots for like $7

    Great area to watch an outdoor play or just have a picnic. It's very clean & the grass are well kept.

    One of our favorite places to have a potluck picnic with all our friends! Just keep your drink cooler well-guarded and inconspicuous...

    One of my favorite easy hikes in LA! It's short & not very steep. Watch out if it's rainy because it will get muddy & slippery.
