Plans to make all of Griffith Park a Cultural Historical Monument got an unopposed green light yesterday and heads next to City Council for approval. This could be a potentially big thing--at least in terms of size, since, according to the Daily News, "at more than 4,200 acres, it would be the largest cultural landmark in the city." It's also just a pretty cool thing to have happen, because Griffith Park plays an important--and interesting--role in our local history; the land was willed to the City after the death of the eccentric Col. Griffith J. Griffith in 1919.
