Description
As Beverly Hills mansions go, this is the grandaddy. The 55-room., 46,054-square-foot home was built on 12 acres by oil magnate Edward Doheny in 1928, as a gift to his newly married son and ... Read more
daughter-in-law. The grounds are as impressive as the mansion: the three-tiered garden were created with more than 100 species of plants, representing every continent, not to mention two waterfalls, two lakes and a greenhouse. Sadly, Doheny's son only enjoyed the home for 4 months, after which he was found dead in the mansion as part of a murder-suicide with a close friend. Today, the grounds are a public park, and the mansion is frequently used to shoot films, notably the Bodyguard, the Witches of Eastwick and Death Becomes Her. Admission to the grounds are free, but hours are limited.

It's free without the tour but you can't go inside, which is fine if you just want to enjoy the views. Nice and peaceful environment.

Tour the grounds of the Greystone Mansion. Walk around and enjoy the water fountain, architecture, and panoramic view of Los Angeles.

Was in the area, so my friends and I stopped for a quick visit. Luckily we were able to walk around the area since the place was not closed off for any event. If you want to experience Beauty and the Beast or the Romantic time period, definitely come here.

They no longer allow photoshoots/taking posed pictures, so you can only take regular shots - I guess too many people were taking advantage of the location and holding shoots?

But love the grass and the view and everything about this place! Decent sized parking lot - this place is open for concerts and other events as well.

Very beautiful place to relax and get a wonderful view of the city. The mansion isn't open for visitors but you can walk around the grounds for free. Plenty of free parking around the mansion too.

It's hard to believe but the park grounds of this beyond beautiful Mansion & Park are open to the public for free most every day from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm & includes free parking. Greystone has been the sight of many movies including The Social Network, The Muppets, Star Trek 2, Charlie's Angel's Full Throttle, Austin Powers: Goldmember, Spiderman, X-Men, The Big Lebowski, Indecent Proposal, The Witches of Eastwick, All of Me & Ghostbusters. You can even become a member at only $100/year & get invited to a private reception inside the Mansion!

What a beautiful place and stunning view of the city!!!!
This place was closed to the public. We couldn't get inside the mansion so we toured the grounds and peeked through the windows trying to get a glimpse of mansion. This place is huge and well kept. They have a lot of green tall trees and beautiful gardens. Love love the tile walkway. There are also fountains and koi pond. It was quiet and peaceful for afternoon troll.

Admission and parking was free. Definitely a Great place to bring a date or take beautiful pictures.

Great place to go if you want to go take some photos. I brought my new camera out here to test it out. And best thing is that it is free. It's pretty quiet up there too, so you can have some long photoshoots without many people disturbing you. And it is also a great place to bring a date. Prepare to do lots of walking though because those hills can be steep. It's like a mini hike, but well worth it. You can get a good view of the city from up there too. I would come back again if I ever want a place to walk around.

Quick tip: Make sure you bring comfortable shoes and a water bottle. This is almost similar to hiking from all the stairs and hills you'll be going up and down from.

So I spent about an hour or so at this place. It was very beautiful, a lot of things to see. There are a lot of photography opportunities, so bust out that DSLR and take some beautiful pictures! There is a spot you can view the whole skyline of Downtown LA and other neighborhoods. The great part about this place is its all free. FREE admission and FREE parking. This is definitely a great spot to take a date and enjoy the views with that special person in your life. Again, make sure to bring water!

I've never been, but it is something to see. This is more representative of Beverly Hills than Rodeo Drive, in my opinion.

Beautiful park with mansion and gardens, just across the Beverly Hills City line above Sunset, off Doheny.

Beautiful little park tucked away in Beverly Hills. It's the perfect place to take visitors or a date when you just want to feel like you've gotten away from the urban sprawl in LA without having to bust out hiking gear or even running shoes. You can't go in the mansion itself unless there is a special event or you shell out big bucks to become a friend/member of the charitable society that maintains this park, but it's nice to stroll around the well-manicured grounds. There's a small picnic area complete with tables and benches. Ample parking.

A lush estate/park/mansion that's been donated to the City of Beverly Hills so it's free and open to the public, along with easy and free parking. I've seen people read a book here on the lawn, wouldn't be a bad idea to have a picnic here either. Check out others reviews and see what have to say.

Free to roam around. Great place to get a beautiful picture of the view.

I'll always think of this place as Whitney Houston's place in the movie The Bodyguard with Kevin Costner.

Plenty of parking! Lots of walking, stairs.

A friend of mine got married here. It was a small intimate event with maybe 50-60 people. Really pretty. I think it's a great place to get married right in the heart of the city with nice views and beautiful grounds. I also attended a car show there for LA Porsche enthusiast (my boss is a member?! must be nice!).

I can hardly believe a place like this even exists in America. If I had passed out and woken up here, I would swear I'm somewhere in Europe. The grounds have a very European feel and combined with California's dry climate, you'll convince yourself you've been teleported to Spain or Italy. As you get down to the mansion, you'll soon feel like you're at an English estate. You most certainly will not feel as if you're in America.

Make sure you check out the list of movies that have been filmed here. There's a list conveniently displayed on an information board by the parking lot along with historical information on the mansion.

Greystone was originally built by a member of the Doheny family in the 1920s, but is now owned and operated as a park by the City of Beverly Hills (the house itself is also operated with the help of the Friends of Greystone). The gardens are beautiful and accessible any time -- the house is only open for special events. The interior is being restored room by room and it is totally awesome -- do yourself a favor and try to make it to one of their fundraisers or other events!

If Versailles had a love child with Cinderella’s mansion, Greystone Mansion would be it. The grounds are beautiful if...confusing. The best part of a trip to Greystone Mansion, however, isn’t the exploring, it’s the ability to have a picnic somewhere that feels like you’re in Europe. Take a basket and enjoy the view -- it’s the perfect 2-hour staycation. (P.S. This is not to be confused with the new SBE version on La Cienega which, we're guessing, will only be magical after about ten cocktails.)
