    This is the Hollyhock House - Frank Lloyd Wright! A beautiful venue from my favorite Architect. The house itself is in a state of renovation and I can't wait till it's open again!!! The park itself is large. Several event are held here yearly. They also have a learning / art center. The land and buildings were donated to the City of Los Angeles by Mrs. Barnsdall. They have a weekly Farmer's Market that is worth checking out on Wednesday's, Free Family Art Workshops on Sunday's & Friday night Wine Tastings begin this month I believe. I've been to a few events here including touring the Art Museum itself.
    Don't forget on the way up to enjoy the view. You get an unencumbered view of the Hollywood Sign and the Griffith Observatory. Usually if you go on a weekday . . . there's no one there. It's fabulous. I take Miley when I want to have less activity around us. On the weekends you can expect to see families, other dogs and children running around. It's the perfect place to pack a picnic, read a good book and take a nap - all without leaving the city :)

    Parking is free and there's plenty. You can choose to park at the bottom (be advised there are homeless who sleep on the grass below) or you can drive all the way to the top and park on the sides of the roadway. Summer is here and so are the bees, if you let them "bee" they will reciprocate.

Barnsdall Art Park sits on 11 acres in the Los Feliz/Hollywood area. The site was deeded to the city of Los Angeles in 1927 as a cultural art center. Today, it is home to the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Barnsdall Art Center, Junior Art Center, and Barnsdall Gallery Theatre. Barnsdall Art Park is operated jointly by the City of Los Angeles’ Recreation and Parks Department, the Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Department of General Services.

Hollyhock House is Frank Lloyd Wright’s first Los Angeles project. Built between 1919 and 1921, it represents his earliest efforts to develop a regionally appropriate style of architecture for Southern California. Wright himself referred to it as California Romanza, using a musical term meaning “freedom to make one’s own form”.
