Barely four miles from Rodeo Drive in the hills of Beverly, Franklin Canyon preserves a natural, if altered, bit of the range just below Mulholland Drive. With deodar cedars, a lake, and a duck pond, it’s a bucolic respite in the thick of the urbanized Santa Monicas. Although unofficial, a marker designates the canyon as the approximate geographic center of the City of Los Angeles. View Map.
