Barnsdall Park is a great place to put out a towel and enjoy the sunshine. A little off the road so you are not bothered by the traffic below on Hollywood Boulevard. In addition, you can see the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House. Just recently named a World Heritage site, you get to see one of the most significant homes ever built in the USA.
The location is great because it's on top of a hill and it affords views of the surrounding area. The Hollyhock house is beautiful in it's strong geometric design. The only drawback is that you cannot go into the kitchen or other areas of the house due to it not being wheelchair-friendly. Perhaps at some point they can accommodate that issue without disrupting the design.
