On Dec 21, 2016

Per a notification from the Los Feliz Improvement Association (LFIA), LA Rec and Parks is anticipating heavy traffic in and around the Griffith Observatory from Thurs., Dec. 23 through Sun., Jan. 8, 2017. There will be mitigation measures placed to help move vehicles out of the Park.

There will be No Parking signs placed along Commonwealth Blvd. from Los Feliz Blvd. up to the Commonwealth Nursery on the west side of the street from 11am-11 pm. These signs will also be posted along the west side of Fern Dell from Los Feliz Blvd. to Black Oak from 11am-11 pm. Additionally, a temporary Stop Sign will be placed at the corner of Fern Dell and Black Oak. Park staff will also assist with egress in the evening at Red Oak. No Parking signs will be posted on one side of Western Canyon Rd. Hopefully, this will help traffic flow and lessen congestion.

LADOT traffic officers will be positioned at Los Feliz Blvd. and Fern Dell, Vermont, Hillhurst and Commonwealth on Dec. 23, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, 2017. LADOT DASH will provide circulator shuttles from the Greek Theatre lots to the Observatory. There will be extra DASH shuttles running from the Sunset/Vermont station courtesy of LADOT DASH, encouraging visitors to take the subway.

During this traffic crush, Park Services will utilize parking and lawn lots at the Greek Theatre.

Electronic message boards will be placed at Hillhurst, Vermont and Fern Dell alerting visitors to traffic conditions near the Observatory & Hollywood Sign.

Park Rangers will be available to assist park visitors @ 323.644-6661.

Please have a safe holiday in the Park!
