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 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.

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.
