Neat site and a wonderful park. Not much to see on the site itself but if you are at the Hollywood Bowl or down the street at Hollywood & Highland you should make your way up. That 1/2 mile will enlighten your understanding of Hollywood.
Also known as Wattles Garden Park, this has been host to several Outstanding in the Field dinners. A great environment for eating and relaxing.
