Spanning more than 4,200 acres of land, Griffith Park is one of the largest municipal parks with urban wilderness areas in the United States. Originally a part of the Spanish land grant, Rancho Los Feliz, the park was named for its former owner, “Colonel” Griffith J. Griffith, a Welsh industrialist and philanthropist. In 1896, Griffith bequeathed five square miles of his Rancho Los Feliz estate to the people of Los Angeles. Since Griffith's original gift, further donations of land, along with city purchases and the reversion of private land to public domain, have expanded Griffith Park to its present size. Read on to find out the best attractions and activities in Griffith Park.
