Hancock Park can refer to two areas in Los Angeles, both worth saving time in your schedule for a look.
The Hancock Park neighborhood is an affluent area with a history that dates back to the mid-1800s, while the actual Hancock Park might be better known as the home of the La Brea Tar Pits and the Page Museum. Since 1906, more than one million bones have been recovered and scientists are still excavating. The best fossils pulled from the Tar Pits are on display in the Page Museum.
Hancock Park is also the home of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). In addition, the park has plenty of open space, making it a nice spot to wander or have a picnic
Parking is available in a lot located at the corner of Curson Ave. and 6th Street, directly behind the Page Museum. Parking for LACMA is located at the Pritzker Parking Garage on Sixth Street. Free charging stations for electric vehicles are available on the first level of the Pritzker Parking Garage.
