Mineral Wells Picnic Area (Griffith Park)
Where we've featured it
At over 4,300 acres, Griffith Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country and home to the LA Zoo, the Griffith Observatory, the Greek Theater, tennis courts, two 18-hole golf courses, and 53 miles of hiking trails. When it comes to picnicking, your options are endless, so we’ll help you narrow it down - go to Mineral Wells. This secluded area in the Northeast corner of the park is well-shaded, has clean bathrooms, good parking, and a fraction of the crowd that you’ll find elsewhere at Griffith on the weekend. It’s also very close to Glendale, making places like Monta Factory and Zhengyalove Hatz excellent pick-up options. If you’re coming from Los Feliz, we love the sandwiches and salads at Mustard Seed.
