One way to enjoy the excellent weather in Los Angeles is by enjoying a picnic with family or friends. Here are some of the best picnic spots in Hollywood.
Valley Village Park
Valley Village Park is a quaint, dog friendly park that also features great play areas for kids.

There is also plenty of street parking, something that is hard to come by in Los Angeles! Valley Village Park is located at 200 Westpark Drive in North Hollywood.
The Hollywood Bowl is an outdoor entertainment venue but is also an excellent area for picnics. In the hills around the Hollywood Bowl, guests will find 14 charming picnic areas. These picnic tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis. When these picnic areas are open is often dependent on the event that is taking place at the venue. For example, some of the picnic areas are open as early as 4 hours before the start time of a concert. The Hollywood Bowl is one of the most unique and best picnic spots in Hollywood.

Lake Hollywood Reservoir
Lake Hollywood Reservoir features a 3.3 mile long trail along the reservoir. There is a surprising amount of wilderness on the loop trail, which takes about 1 hour to finish. You’ll see trees, coyotes and sometimes even deer. In addition, you can enjoy some great views of the city. Lake Hollywood Reservoir is a great getaway from the city to enjoy some nature, as well as a great place to enjoy a meal away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.
Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery
An iconic destination in the heart of Hollywood, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the final resting place of some of Hollywood’s biggest name, including Cecil B. DeMille, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, and more recently, rock star Chris Cornell. It’s also home to Cinespia’s summer movies series, where you can spread a blanket on the cemetery lawn and enjoy a movie projected onto the side of a giant mausoleum. Bring a picnic dinner to enjoy during the movie.
