Amir’s Garden Hike
Amir’s Garden is no mere garden; it’s one of two unique and awesome picnic areas on the east side of Griffith Park. The most surprising place for a picnic is probably the Old Zoo Picnic Area, where you can dine alongside old animal pens. Amir’s Garden is the most pleasant place for a hike-in picnic, with a selection of picnic tables surrounded by a volunteer-supported sanctuary of flowering greenery. It is a 1-mile round trip hike to Amir’s Garden with 275-feet of elevation gain – just enough effort to make you hungry for a peaceful meal in the outdoors.
