Grand Park in the Civic Center neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles is known as an inclusive environment for Angelenos and visitors alike to enjoy the beautiful weather of Southern California. The park offers impressive views of downtown LA’s outdoor scenery, extending from the Music Center to City Hall to the Art Deco City Hall building across the lawn. Giving easy access to the park, the Civic Center / Grand Park, Metro stop is only a minute away.
This park provides a space where people of diverse ages and backgrounds can come together to participate in a broad range of community activities, cultural events, festivals, holiday celebrations, and celebrations year-round. It's even been the site of a few iconic film settings, including "Pretty Woman" and "500 Days of Summer."
Visitors can join in outdoor activities and interactive events, enjoy musical entertainment, or simply sit and relax for a picnic on Grand Park’s expansive clean, green lawn. There are also several stages and tables for guests to appreciate the famous LA sunshine.
Visitors can get in touch with local history at the Arthur J. Will Memorial Fountain, at the northwest end of the park, about a block from the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The Memorial Fountain has stood as the main ornament of LA’s Grand Park for decades and doubles as a splash pad during hot weather!
Grand Park is open from 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., daily.
