Directions & Parking

Getting To and Around Griffith Park

Griffith Park is just west of the Golden State Freeway (I-5), between Los Feliz Boulevard on the south and the Ventura Freeway (SR 134) on the north.

DASH Shuttle

On weekends, holidays and during the summer months, Griffith Park is extremely congested with heavy traffic and limited parking opportunities, even on nearby residential streets

Avoid congestion and parking fees; use DASH, the official transit provider into Griffith Park. The bus connects at the Sunset/Vermont Metro station and makes stops through Los Feliz village, The Greek Theatre, Mt Hollywood hiking trail and the front lawn of the Griffith Observatory.

Click for DASH Observatory/Los Feliz info with Map on LADOT website >

The DASH runs every day – 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. (even on Mondays when the Observatory building is closed.)

Shuttles run every 15—20 minutes. Last shuttle to depart from The Griffith Observatory is at 10pm.The Metro Red Line at Sunset/Vermont is a DASH shuttle stop. Click here for more information about using Metro to get to Griffith Park.
