Grand Park lies in the urban heart of Los Angeles and offers a memorable experience for all visitors with its relaxing walking paths, casual sitting areas, and iconic fountains. It was created to be a place where all Angelenos can find comfort, and the diversity in that kind of appeal is represented in the park itself.

This park offers serene views stretching from the Music Center to City Hall, as the park covers 12 acres in total. It's a notably pedestrian-friendly park, as even the walking paths were strategically developed to be under shade from trees.

Grand Park highlights

Inside Grand Park, you'll find 4 distinct sections that work together to allow for such a varied selection of offerings. First, you'll find the Arthur J. Will Memorial Fountain and its accompanying "membrane pool" that's open for wading. During certain events, the fountain's water is lit up in bright colors.

The remaining portions of the park are dedicated to the local community. You'll find a small lawn that's often utilized for performances and another lawn used for hosting events. Finally, you can visit a community terrace with a diverse array of drought-tolerant plants.
