Beautiful little park tucked away in Beverly Hills. It's the perfect place to take visitors or a date when you just want to feel like you've gotten away from the urban sprawl in LA without having to bust out hiking gear or even running shoes. You can't go in the mansion itself unless there is a special event or you shell out big bucks to become a friend/member of the charitable society that maintains this park, but it's nice to stroll around the well-manicured grounds. There's a small picnic area complete with tables and benches. Ample parking.

A lush estate/park/mansion that's been donated to the City of Beverly Hills so it's free and open to the public, along with easy and free parking. I've seen people read a book here on the lawn, wouldn't be a bad idea to have a picnic here either. Check out others reviews and see what have to say.

A friend of mine got married here. It was a small intimate event with maybe 50-60 people. Really pretty. I think it's a great place to get married right in the heart of the city with nice views and beautiful grounds. I also attended a car show there for LA Porsche enthusiast (my boss is a member?! must be nice!).

I can hardly believe a place like this even exists in America. If I had passed out and woken up here, I would swear I'm somewhere in Europe. The grounds have a very European feel and combined with California's dry climate, you'll convince yourself you've been teleported to Spain or Italy. As you get down to the mansion, you'll soon feel like you're at an English estate. You most certainly will not feel as if you're in America.
Make sure you check out the list of movies that have been filmed here. There's a list conveniently displayed on an information board by the parking lot along with historical information on the mansion.Recommended for:

Greystone was originally built by a member of the Doheny family in the 1920s, but is now owned and operated as a park by the City of Beverly Hills (the house itself is also operated with the help of the Friends of Greystone). The gardens are beautiful and accessible any time -- the house is only open for special events. The interior is being restored room by room and it is totally awesome -- do yourself a favor and try to make it to one of their fundraisers or other events!

If Versailles had a love child with Cinderella’s mansion, Greystone Mansion would be it. The grounds are beautiful if...confusing. The best part of a trip to Greystone Mansion, however, isn’t the exploring, it’s the ability to have a picnic somewhere that feels like you’re in Europe. Take a basket and enjoy the view -- it’s the perfect 2-hour staycation. (P.S. This is not to be confused with the new SBE version on La Cienega which, we're guessing, will only be magical after about ten cocktails.)
