  • It's been 10 years since Vista Hermosa Natural Park has opened. It is planted with native California trees and vegetation that now have matured to the point that when you walk through this park, you c...  more »
  • This park feels much larger than its size due to it's brilliant landscape design. The rolling hills, generous plantings, and blue sky views make you feel like you've stumbled into a forest in the midd...  more »
  • I first came to this parking overlooking downtown Los Angeles soon after it opened in 2008. I happened to see a story in the Los Angeles Times — still available if you search online — that told how th...  more »

  • I have been in this area so often and never even knew this park existed! The parking lot is small but it seems like a lot of street parking is available. The park itself is beautiful, a lot of green with a little babbling brook even! Great for walks or a picnic. Amazing views of downtown and surrounding area. Really a gem that shouldn't be so hidden!
  • One of my favorite LA getaways. There’s a classic photo spot here on a bench past the restrooms. Many people come here for this. There’s a fun play area for kids, picnic tables throughout, and much room to hangout in the grass under shade. They have a nice waterfall area as well. I love coming here because it’s a quiet beautiful place in the middle of the city with free parking (in the lot, or on the street) and great views of DTLA. Hence the name— vista Hermosa. Indeed it is.
  • One of Inner City , downtown Los Angeles absolute best kept secrets. Might even be worthy of trying to figure out how to reserve the middle lair of the park for a wedding.
  • This new gift that our city has given us is designed for families and individuals alike. The park is perfect because of its multi-use design. You could come here with families and feel safe. You can come here to do exercise or just to be in nature. The Landscaping is beautiful and makes the park look much bigger than it is. There are Rolling Hills and parking is easy. If you're in downtown Los Angeles this is a must-see
  • This park is a beautiful place to come sit down on the grass with a blanket under many trees. I really enjoyed this place . Though I did notice there are a lot of young little couples looked like they ditch school to come here and kiss and etc. Dont think minor little kids should be seeing these lil kids kissing and all up on top of each other . Other then that I will deffinatly come here again .
