Concrete Pool - Robin Hood Lake
The concrete pool was built for water scenes in the movies
filmed at Corriganville. This pool was the location for underwater scenes
in many movies including: "Robin Hood," "Jungle Jim," and "African Queen.".
Various records indicate that this pool, at different times, was
called "Jungle Jim Lake," "Robin Hood Lake," "Sherwood Lake" and "Corriganville
Lake." It included a "stunt rock" and underwater camera house (see below).

Fighting For Space
Which was here first - the rock or the tree? Acutally,
the oak tree started growing next to the rock, so the rock came first.
As the tree grew over the past several hundred years, the tree started
to expand toward the rock. As the tree became taller and larger, it started
to grow on and around the rock. This is an excellent example of how living
things in nature fight for a share of limited space.
Sue-On takes the "Wildlife Corridor"
The construction of the 118 Freeway in the early 1980s
bisected Bob Hope's 1,740-acre ranch. As part of the construction project,
Caltans was required to build this tunnel to connect both sides of Mr.
Hope's ranch. Wildlife uses the tunnel to migrate between the Santa Susana
Mountains to the north and the Simi Hills to the south. This wildlife corridor
assists animals' hunt for food and shelter.
