Located between Beverly Hills and the San Fernando Valley, Franklin Canyon Park's 605 acres of land have something for everyone. Its three main trails - Discovery, Berman, and Hastain - are great for novice to intermediate hikers. This fantastic park for families with young children has a loop trail around the reservoir that is stroller friendly.
Those looking for a more robust hike can climb to beautiful vistas of the City. Take the family to the Sooky Goldman Nature Center to view exhibits, buy a snack, or join a free interpretive program. Heavenly Pond and Franklin Canyon Reservoir provide respite for a variety of birds journeying on the Pacific Flyway, and plenty of ducks call the canyon home year round. The park has served as a backdrop for many Hollywood productions. Meeting rooms, auditorium, amphitheater and park areas are available for special events, including weddings, by special use permit.
