If Runyon Canyon is too much of a scene, this park is perfect. A great hiking spot and also a great place for a picnic.
I received not one, but two tickets for (they claimed) not properly stopping at a (photo enforced) stop sign. I was trying to exit the park and missed it the first time, so looped around to try again. The video, which was taken from an angle at the rear of my car, made it seem my car had not fully stopped. It absolutely had. I made sure that I made a full stop especailly the second time through. When I called to complain, I was treated VERY rudely by one of the rangers After finding out what kind of hassle it would be to try to contest the tickets, I went ahead and paid them, but vowed never to return. The park is making a mint off unsuspecting drivers, using very suspect means of 'proving' that you violated a traffic rule. Besides which, there is some question as to whether, due to California state law, it is even legal for them to be enforcing traffic rules. The Conservancy has been threatened with lawsuits over this enforcement program, but I do not know if anyone has actually ever sued. All I know is that I did not run any stop sign and I got ticketed anyway. BEWARE.
Sorry I have a question for Franklin Canyon park. Does it have Barbeque?
A beautiful, magical place – I can't believe the yo-yo whose entire one-star review was based on the fact that he got busted for running a stop sign. He was cheeky enough to complain about other people who run stop signs faster than he does. You don't get to decide the appropriate speed to run a stop sign, dbag.
I love love love franklin canyon. It is a wonderful place to hike or relax and is marred only by the presence of people like the guy who posted the one-star review and their bratty kids.
A fun, scenic, money making racket. Go somewhere else. – You know, I take my kids here all the time, and one time, at about 10:15am on a weekday, I coasted through a Stop Sign at no more than 3 mph, and ended up with a $175 ticket from the "Mountains Recreation Conservation Authority Stop Sign Photo Enforcement Program" (yeah that's really the title). I understand the importance of this kind of thing, but you've got to be kidding me. What a racket. I come here to relax with my kids, not to be given the adult equivalent of a "pink slip" from some automated "hall monitor". If I was some Hollywood jerk, blazing through this thing, that would be one thing, but I wasn't. I will be telling people to watch out for this place, and if they have a choice, to be heading over to Tree People's park up the street instead.
Franklin Cyn Park is good for hiking and walking dogs. – I've gone to Franklin Cyn Park several times with friends. It's really a great park for doggies especially since people don't forget to pick up after them. There is plenty of parking and I've even played badminton here once. They have an auditorium and an amphitheater for performances and events, a picnic site, a lake and even a duck pond. Watch out! Franklin Cyn Park is a popular filming location.
