Day-trippers are welcome to walk around Greystone Mansion Park free of charge. You can take a peek inside the windows, stroll around the grounds and enjoy the amazing views of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.
Greystone Mansion was built by oil tycoon Edward Doheny in 1928. The property had several owners over the years and is now run by the city and parks department.
These days Greystone Mansion is mainly used as a filming location, wedding venue or a place to hold special events. Greystone Park may be closed on days when weddings or event are being held.
