Amir's Garden defines exclusivity. In fact, it is a difficult place to find if you're not looking for it. I stumbled into after following some stairs up to the "top" to see where they led. They led me to the quiet, secluded setting that is Amir's Garden. The garden is a ten-minute hike up from Griffith Park's street level and feels lush: flowers and greenery, with the surrounding trees that seem to reach for the sky. It's an ideal place to retreat for some peace of mind, if you don't mind sweating a bit to get there.April 9, 2012 Like Add a Comment
