Located in the heart of L.A., this park resembles an oasis among the urban jungle. There are fountains, pools, lawns, and leisure destinations. In summer concerts, fests, and other noisy events often take place here as well. The park is ideal for those who want to eat in the fresh air without spending half a day on that.
Address:200 North Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Vista Hermosa Park
According to TheHomeDweller.com, this park is another oasis among the gray urban architecture. The famous bench on the hill offers one of the best views of L.A. There are picnic tables, cozy walking paths, lawns for active leisure games and a giant snake sculpture that will definitely grab your kids’ attention.
Address: 100 N Toluca St, Los Angeles, CA 90026
A large artificial lake occupies a significant part of Echo Park. In its center, there is a tiny island with a bridge spreading from the shore. It’s almost always noisy and crowded with people. And for a good reason – tall trees, urban landscapes, and catamarans for hire lure visitors with picnic baskets here.
Address: 1632 Bellevue Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90026
Lake Balboa Park
There’s no need for the Valley residents to go to Echo Park to have a picnic by the lake in fact. There are barbecue grills, picnic tables and green lawns for more traditional holiday fans with a blanket on the grass. Animals allowed (provided they are on a leash).
Address: 6300 Balboa Blvd, Van Nuys, CA 91316
This one stretches nearly 2.5 kilometers along the coast of Santa Monica. It’s a great place to admire the ocean and sunset. There are many benches, picnic areas, and walking paths here, as well as more than 30 types of trees, a rose garden, and an arbor embraced by green.

Lake Hollywood Park
This picturesque park is located on the Hollywood hills overlooking the lake and the huge “Hollywood” sign. Here you can play baseball or have a picnic (special barbecue areas detected). And most importantly, all this time your pet will be able to accompany you: dogs (and cats) are allowed for sure!
Address: 3200 Canyon Lake Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90068
This is a whole complex with a stadium, exhibition hall, the California Science Center, and the Museum of Natural History. But we are most interested in the rose garden. A picnic in the shade of the trees next to a blooming and fragrant beauty is a glorious idea!
