A Park Unobtrusive
Barnsdall Art Park5
Why locals love it
An undiscovered gem, Barnsdall is the park for locals who want some quiet. With great views of the city, it plays host to those just looking for a leisurely stroll or some sunbathing. The park sits atop a hill across from Griffith Park.
Why you should visit it
Located within walking distance of the Vermont/Sunset red line station, the park has both a well-groomed copse of pine trees that provide plenty of shade and an open field with tables and chairs and sun. There's also a museum dedicated local artists and a famous house that occasionally hosts artsy events, like wine tastings and craft fairs.
