For nearly a century, Fern Dell has been an urban oasis. In its first sixty years, it was one of Griffith Park’s most celebrated features but more recent decades have not been so kind. Today it is in need of rehabilitation and, fortunately, help is on the horizon. Facilitated by generous funding from the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s L.A. County Preservation Fund, the Griffith J. Griffith Charitable Trust and the Friends of Griffith Park are working with a professional team to lay the groundwork for Fern Dell’s revitalization.
Take Franklin Ave. to Western. North on Western, up the hill; road bears right and becomes Los Feliz Blvd. Stay in LEFT lane and turn left at first stoplight, Fern Dell Drive. Drive one minute, past stop sign at Black Oak Drive, look for Trails Cafe on the left and find street parking.
