Help protect Griffith Park

October 04, 2008

Re "Parks to the people," Opinion, Sept. 28

Historical designation for Griffith Park is long overdue. The park has a long history dating to 1896, when Griffith J. Griffith generously donated the land for the park to the city.

The park has served people from all parts of Los Angeles and beyond. It is a park that offers recreational and cultural opportunities to all people and, in the words of Griffith, it is a park "accessible and attractive, where neither race, creed nor color should be excluded."

Designating Griffith Park as a Los Angeles city historical cultural monument would help protect the park from overdevelopment and be true to the vision of Col. Griffith.
