Ferndell Nature Museum in Griffith Park - Los Angeles, CA
5375 Red Oak Dr, Los Angeles, California 90027 USA
Situated at the southwestern tip of Griffith Park, Ferndell Nature Museum is a 20-acre botanical oasis that features a quarter-mile meandering trail, 20-plus waterfalls and 17 footbridges, all canopied by more than 50 fern and tropical plant varieties. The shaded, breezy spot has long been a favorite haven for Angelenos, especially on warm summer days.
The idyllic glen should be recognizable as the gardens of a Bajoran monastery from two Deep Space Nine episodes – Season 1’s “In the Hands of the Prophets” and Season 2’s “The Circle.” Ferndell also portrayed a woodland holodeck simulation in the pilot episode of The Next Generation, “Encounter at Farpoint.”
Ferndell is open to the public from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
