Griffith Park Griffin in Flames Kelly Green T-shirts

Griffith Park

Griffith Park is one of the biggest city parks in the world - more than 4,200 acres - and probably the only one that regularly has wildfires. When it's not being evacuated and swarmed by helicopters dumping water on blazes, the park is a great place to hike to the Hollywood sign, catch a concert in the Greek Theatre, or see the real stars at the Griffith Observatory, where the tragic end of the 1955 movie "Rebel Without a Cause" was filmed. In the 1880s the land was the site of an ostrich farm created by Col. Griffith J. Griffith to provide feathers for the hat industry and draw attention to his nearby land development. Filmmaker D.W. Griffith, no relation to the colonel, filmed the racist classic "Birth of a Nation" in the park in 1915. The ruins of the original Los Angeles Zoo, abandoned in 1965, were the set for the animal scenes in the more recent classic, "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy." Enjoy the park, but if you see smoke, and it doesn't smell like hot dogs, get back to Hollywood.
