LA Parks: Ascot Hills

by Gabrielle Antonette

Somehow, these blindingly golden rolling hills in the middle of LA go largely unnoticed. Ascot Hills Park is tucked away in El Sereno, making it relatively quiet and easy to access. You don't have to battle traffic or crowds, and you get some of the best views of Downtown. It's good for watching celestial events, picnics, hiking, and for showing off to out-of-towners (especially at sunset). If you're looking to really sweep someone off their feet, Fosselman's Ice Cream is a quick ten minute drive from the park and a perfect, pre-or-post-sunset snack.
