The Griffith Park Train Rides
" With three small children, Travel Town is a blessing. Free parking and admission. Lots of things to see and do. The train ride is just perfect for the little ones and the big locomotives let the older one explore and make believe. We love it!"
-- Angie P.

"My sons love the trains. We are here with them almost every weekend." -- Jose S.
