We visited Franklin Canyon Park primarily to see where the Andy Griffith Show was filmed. Neat place to walk around and enjoy the beautiful scenery! Short drive from area attractions, this is a neat stop!

This is a beautiful park and a must-see park. Love walking through it. If you get the chance, then it may look familiar. That's because a part of the walk and lake was used in the opening credits of The Andy Griffith Show. George Vreeland...More

This is one of the nature parks you have to visit. Franklin is a large park and in it music concerts are held. It is a short drive from Beverly hills. There is plenty of car parking spaces when needed.

Franklin Canyon Reservoir Loop is a great family experience! The trails are family friendly. We would suggest rugged outdoor-geared strollers only. Bring lots of water. The bathroom is clean! Ducks, geese, turtles, and frogs can be seen near the water. *sorry, feeding the ducks is...More

Just a short drive from "downtown" Beverley Hills on the north end of Beverly Drive & continue on Franklin Canyon Drive to this nature jewel - lake & forest in the steep canyons. Great short hiking.

This little park has a cute lake with turtles in it and a pond with ducks. Lots of plants, good place to walk the dogs. It is also near the Tree People where there are more nature trails.

This park takes you into a different mindset as you can't believe it exists in the middle of the city. Great paths and picnic areas. You can bring fido too!

Little parking. Filthy conditions. Vicious, fat, nasty cops to ruin your day. Hard to get to with lots of extra traffic at all the wrong times when you'd like to use it or access it. This is not a place that is friendly to pets...More

I adore this little secret hideout. The path around the pond is like going back in time to when the Indians lived here. The history of this little pocked in paradise is well worth the winding road to get here. I've been coming here for...More
