The Franklin Reserve is located on the top of Naval Hill, in the middle of Bloemfontein city. Due to the reserve being located on the top of the hill, there are opportunities of hiking trails from the parking areas located at the base of the hill. The trail provides spectacular views of the wildlife of the Franklin Reserve, which includes antelopes and giraffes. The Naval Hill held special significance during the South African War. In the period between 1928 and 1972, an observatory was placed on the hill, which now serves as a theatre.
