TreePeople encourages carpooling to Coldwater Canyon Park and we've reserved parking spaces for cars carrying two or more visitors. Carpoolers save time and money and also reduce the stress of driving by sharing their ride.
We are located up on the ridgeline between Beverly Hills and Studio City. The park entrance is at the stoplight where Coldwater Canyon Ave., Franklin Canyon Dr. and Mulholland Dr. (West) intersect. The entrance is on the Valley-side of the street.
NOTE: Beverly Hills' Coldwater Canyon Park (½ mile north of Sunset Blvd.) is NOT our headquarters, this is a park run by the City of Beverly Hills. Our Coldwater Canyon Park is at a higher elevation and is a City of Los Angeles park.
NOTE: Current construction on the 405 Freeway causes periodic closures around Mulholland Drive – check current conditions with Caltrans.
