Lake Hollywood Reservoir – Get your kids and take a break from your routine!

Why you should come here? There are few places in LA that are closed to cars where you can walk, run, and bike and have great views of the city and the Hollywood sign. I come here with my daughter and push her stroller around as many others do. There are tons of little kids learning to ride their bikes safely. When my daughter is not with me I like to run around the loop. It is roughly a 3.5 mile loop that is completely flat. About 3 miles of it are completely closed to cars.The highlight of the ride is the bridge which gives you views of the reservoir and the Hollywood sign.The reservoir has three entrances actually. 1 - the Lake Hollywood gate which has free parking on the super steep hill. 2 - The gate with the "Hollywood gate" close to the Lake Hollywood Park. This is in a residential neighborhood and the least popular opening. 3 - The Weid lake Drive gate. This is the 2nd most popular parking spot. It has quite a bit of free parking but you will drive narrow streets to get there. The reservoir is a great launching point for bike rides up to the Hollywood sign. This is an absolute gem in the city.
