Great Graffiti Paintout in the Old Zoo

CATEGORY: Current Events |
On Sep 11, 2018

On September, as part of the National Public Lands Day | NEEF, Friends of Griffith Park will be doing a graffiti paintout / trash pickup in the Old Zoo area of the park.

We’re doing this paintout and trash pickup from 9-11 am and request that everyone wears good working shoes and OLD clothes. Don’t forget to bring a hat, and lots ‘o sun screen.

And fyi, we welcome volunteers of all ages to come and help out!

Follow the signs to the Old Zoo parking, or park on the lower level of the Merry-go-Round and walk over to the Old Zoo.

We’ll provide the paint and brushes…

    SaveGlendaleRiversideRancho is concerned over the damaging effects of an aerial tramway in Griffith Park. It will have a negative impact to the environmental and bio ecosystem, aesthetics and will not benefit the open space. Tourists already occupy a perfect platform on the south side of Griffith Park where tour vans stop and photos can be taken just below the Hollywood sign. This is a risk of a bankrupt tram and then who pays?
