The event was created for the popular app Pokemon Go, a geocaching game that allows users to discover Pokemon in real-world locations.
According to event organizers, the location was chosen due to the park's varied climates, enabling participants to catch desert, grass, and water-type Pokemon.
The meetup was originally intended for a handful of people. But word-of-mouth spread quickly, and organizers had to purchase a permit for the event.
The mobile game has been so successful that Nintendo's market value rose by $7.5 billion on Monday, according to The Verge .
