Big Hits by The Rolling Stones

Franklin Canyon Park has more than 605 acres and is located between the San Fernando Valley and Beverly Hills. You can find a three-acre lake and over five miles of hiking trails here. The National Park Service purchased the Franklin Canyon Ranch in 1981.

“Big Hits (High Tide And Green Grass)” by the Rolling Stones and Simon and Garfunkel’s Sounds Of Silence were both shot here.

The location was also used in the opening credits of The Andy Griffith Show which aired on CBS from October 3, 1960 to April 1, 1968 as well as dozens of other TV shows and movie productions. Most notably the lagoon from Creature from the Black Lagoon was filmed at Franklin Lake and the duck pond next to the reservoir was used in On Golden Pond.
