Encompassing over 4,200 acres of natural terrain covered with California Oak Trees, Wild Sage and Manzanita. Some inhabitants also include coyote, deer, raccoons, hawks, & woodpeckers. Griffith Park is the United States' largest municipal park. First discovered by Spanish explorers, the wooded and hilly land became part of the Rancho Los Feliz land grant from the King of Spain, and then fell into the hands of Colonel Griffith J. Griffith, the mining tycoon whose bronze statue now graces the parks main entrance, and who deeded the land to the city in 1896. While it's typically not associated with it, Griffith Park is also home to the Hollywood sign, which stands on Mt. Lee. Along with all of the fun things to do listed below there is many hiking opportunities, biking, and several big play grounds.
