Picnics and springtime go hand-in-hand. Los Angeles has some of the most beautiful picnic-worthy green spaces and many are located right around the corner from your Qwil Apartment. Pack your basket, throw a picnic blanket in your bag, or simply grab a charcuterie board and a bottle of wine. It’s picnic season, and it’s time to discover some of Los Angeles’s most picturesque alfresco spots. Here are Qwil Apartment’s top 5 picnic locations in Los Angeles. 

Where To Have A Picnic In Los Angeles 

Griffith Park 

You can see just about all of the City of Dreams from Griffith Park. Besides the Greek Theatre and the Griffith Observatory, the park is best known for its open lawns and beautiful gardens. The perfect place to enjoy a picnic during the day, go on a hike, gaze at the city view, or a romantic date at sunset. The park worked its magic on Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in “La La Land” and it was the place where Walt Disney dreamed of Disneyland. Pack your picnic; it’s your moment now! 

Hancock Park La Brea 

Located only 3 miles away from your Qwil Apartment in Hollywood is Hancock Park La Brea. You probably have heard of the La Brea Tar Pit with over 100 years of fossils but do not let that scare you. Take a stroll around the park, and on the other end, you will find the Urban Lights outside the LACMA. The greens expand between the two attractions providing an ideal spot for a picnic and also dog friendly. Enjoy the outdoor breeze and before you leave, visit the row of museums on Wilshire.

Lake Hollywood Park 

Placed right below the iconic Hollywood Sign, Lake Hollywood Park is a must for a relaxing picnic, a large grass area for your pets to enjoy, and impeccable views. Not only do they have a few picnic tables available, but you can also lay a blanket down and enjoy. A few miles away from your Qwil Luxury Apartment is your next picnic location. If you aren’t in the mood to pack a few snacks and relax, go and take a photo of the Hollywood sign and make sure to tag @liveqwil on Instagram. 

Descanso Gardens 

Get in your car; we have a special place for you. Truly a hidden oasis located in La Canada Flintridge. There is no better time than now to visit. The best time to galavant through the botanical gardens is April to the end of May. There is nothing like setting up a picnic for your love or relaxing with your best friends than being surrounded by lilacs, orchids, roses, and even cherry blossoms. The botanical gardens are open from 9 am-7 pm Monday through Friday, and 9 am -5 pm on Saturday through Sunday. The Descanso Gardens are top on Qwil’s list for your next picnic location. Enjoy! 

National Picnic Day is approaching on April 23rd, and we will take any excuse to be outside, enjoy a basket of snacks, and even a splash of wine.
