Get the Best Griffith Park Parking in LA

Griffith Park is one of the largest municipal parks in the country, with over 4000 acres of natural terrain and landscaped parklands. Located in the eastern Santa Monica Mountain range, the park elevations roughly vary from 300 to 1600; probably why you’ll see a lot of traffic and parking congestion at higher areas of the park, like around the Griffith Observatory. The DASH shuttle running through the park on all days of the week makes it easier to park at a Griffith Park parking lot and hop on for a quick ride to your destination. Both paid parking and free parking at Griffith Park are limited due to the high demand; there are multiple parking lots and street parking spots, but find a vacant space can be challenging. Book your Griffith Park parking at an affordable garage in the neighborhood and get instant access to a guaranteed parking spot when you arrive.

Griffith Park is primarily busy during weekends, evenings, and in summer – the demand for parking space will be high, especially at higher elevations like viewpoints for the Hollywood signs and near the observatory. There are only limited street parking spaces within the park and if you are not there early, expect to drive around in search of a vacant spot.
