Harry Griffen Park, quietly tucked away in the Grossmont Summit area where La Mesa and El Cajon adjoin, has for years remained one of East County’s well-kept secrets. As the largest park within La Mesa’s city limits, its 53 acres encompass grassy fields, sidewalks and dirt trails, a eucalyptus-shaded picnic area with barbecues, an amphitheater with seating for up to 360 persons, a kids’ playground, and a fenced enclosure for unleashed dogs.
