Supposedly cursed by Doña Petrenilla, niece of the person in charge of the land, she was enraged having been left out of the will. The following people who owned the land would later fall victim to the supposed curse, including Griffith J. Griffith, whom the park is named after (Griffith would later go to jail for murder). Caretakers and rangers say they’ve seen figures including that of Doña among other ghosts.
