We stayed by Griffith Park during our stay in LA. It’s pretty tough finding time to run but with paths like these it’s actually a fun part of the vacation. Felt safe during the morning hours.

Lots here with the Autry museum, zoo, many trails, Griffith observatory. Don't forget the merry-go-round near the ranger station. Operating on weekends and a few other days - even has old time music: both the young and young-at-heart will enjoy it! Treats for sale too.

Griffith park is massive so I'd recommend using uber/lyft to get around from wherever you are finished to LA Zoo! There are buses that run down Los Feliz blvd but it depends on where you're finishing up in the park!
