Rolling hills define the Glassell Park landscape, providing a diverse housing selection in this tucked away gem. With new businesses opening consistently in this on-the-cusp neighborhood, it is a great time to discover Glassell.

Spend a day here: Lemon Poppy is the breakfast spot in Glassell Park, with Romanian-inspired dishes (try the Plachinta breakfast). Then, just a short walk across the street takes you to the Glassell Park Recreation Center, where you'll find the neighborhood pool, walking trails, and even a baseball diamond. Grab lunch at the newest café on the block, Habitat, and refuel with a coffee. Hike up to the Glasselland sign and take in views of the city. Enjoy an evening bike ride down the quiet streets of Glassell Park's residential areas, and take in the Los Angeles sunset at Verdugo Bar with friends.
