There are tables at the "entrance" to this Griffith Park oasis, where you can picnic while enjoying the quiet and beauty. Or you can explore one of the trails cut down the hillside, winding through greenery planted by the eponymous Amir Dialameh, an Iranian immigrant who transformed a steep hill into a shaded grove over 30 years of hard work. Benches are spread throughout Dialameh's jacaranda, pine and oleander, so it's easy to find a quiet spot.
