It's been a long process, but Griffith Park, the nation's largest city park, tomorrow will be ceremonially dedicated as Los Angeles' newest and largest historic cultural monument. Councilmember Tom LaBonge will stand beside the bronze statue of Col. Griffith J. Griffith tomorrow, with the colonel’s grandson at his side, and dedicate at the dedication. On January 27th, the park officially became a monument when it got its procedural blessing from City Council and the Mayor, but tomorrow morning will be a time for community that sought to protect the park to gather and celebrate it's heritage.
