Spanning more than 4,000 acres, Griffith Park is one of the largest urban greenspaces in North America. Located at the eastern terminus of the Santa Monica mountain range, the park is home to the Greek Theatre, Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles Zoo (plus the abandoned enclosures of the former Griffith Park Zoo), Bronson Canyon, the Hollywood Sign and several history museums.
