Great park with beautiful outlooks of DTLA and San gabriel Valley. Park has sports fields, fribee gold course and is great for a 3 hour hike.

There is a gem of a trail here at Elysian Park called the Angel Loop! It's about 2.8 miles and takes around 1.5 hours to complete. This is a unique and great hike especially if you are trying to stay within the realm of Downtown LA. It really is an urban city hike as you can see the pile of cars on the freeway all around you. My favorite part of this hike is the hidden swing that overlooks the city. There is also a part of the hike towards the top that is all pavement that showcases the downtown LA skyline. It's captivating as if you were walking level towards the buildings.

It looks like it can get populated at the bottom of the park with picnics as this park is next to dodger stadium. If you are looking for more of a isolated picnic experience, make sure to venture to the top.

If you plan on doing the Angel Loop trail, the trailhead is on Stadium Way and Elysian Park Drive.

Very nice little park behind dodger stadium. There are some grills and picnic tables there for grilling and eating. You can take your dog there and walk around, it becomes very scenic as you go up the hill. Lots of nice views over the city because it goes over the I-5 freeway. I would recommend coming with some friends and playing ultimate frisbee because there is a lot of grass.

A great large park in the middle of LA?! And hardly anyone visits the park (apart from Dodger games), so it's a great place to have a relatively quiet hike. And you'll be rewarded with great views of downtown LA, northeast LA, and Hollywood!

This is Los Angeles's oldest and possibly the most under-utilized public park. At 575-acres it is the city's second largest park, after Griffith Park. It has miles of walking trails, gorgeous panoramas and a beautiful, diverse collection of trees, planted partly by convict labor and partly by men needing work during various depressions.
