  • Nice little park alongside Santa Monica boulevard. A beautiful and simple laid out park without fences or compound. We were there at 7.30 pm so it looked more beautiful in twilight. There is a pond at the center of park with the sign of Beverly Hills. Nice pathways and lawns all around, where you can relax, take photos. There are clean public restrooms in the park in case you need one. Nice little attraction of Los Angeles.πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»
  • It's a nice pocket of a park in the midst of busy Beverly Hills, but it's hard to find space amidst all the tourists. If you are wanting a photo in front of the iconic sign, you may also have to wait in a bit of a line, and have other people in your photo. If you're not there for the photo (I didn't bother), it's a nice park for a quick picnic or just a shady place to sit down on a hot day.
