Griffith Park Officially a Landmark

From the Los Angeles Conservancy:  On January 27, 2009, the City of Los Angeles' City Council unanimously voted in support of designating Griffith Park in its entirety as a Historic- Cultural Monument (HCM), adopting the recommendation of the city's Planning and Land Use Management Committee (PLUM) and Cultural Heritage Commission.

To allay concerns over how to manage the park's vast array of historic resources, the city's Office of Historic Resources will work with the Department of Recreation and Parks to develop a maintenance plan that identifies all elements to be protected under the HCM designation.  Likewise, PLUM agreed to exempt pending projects from additional review by the Cultural Heritage Commission, including the proposed Autry Museum expansion project.  

The largest interurban wilderness park in the United States, Griffith Park is a Los Angeles icon, a highly significant cultural landscape, and a vital resource for Angelenos from all walks of life. It dates from 1896, when Colonel Griffith J. Griffith and his wife Mary Agnes Christine (Tina) donated over 3,000 acres to the City of Los Angeles, “to be used as a public park for purposes of recreation, health and pleasure, for the use and benefit of the inhabitants of the said City of Los Angeles, forever."
