Griffith Park in Jeopardy?

Hosted by
Griffith Park dates back to 1896, and it's the largest city-owned park in the nation. Since the Greek Theater and Griffith Observatory were added before World War II, times have changed, but the 4000-acre Park has stayed pretty much the same. In March, the Los Angeles City Department of Recreation and Parks released a 190-page draft plan for the future development of Griffith Park. That has alarmed some of the park's supporters, who say the plan would over-commercialize a unique public asset. We hear more about the draft master plan from Bernadette Soter, who chairs the area's Parks, River and Open Space Committee, Councilman Tom LaBonge, who represents the area, and from Kevin Regan of the LA Department of Recreation and Parks.
