[Neighborhood] Woodland Hills

Woodland Hills Apartments for Rent

With the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains in view, Woodland Hills is a small neighborhood nestled in the San Fernando Valley. With a population of approximately seventy thousand people and one of the least densely populated spaces in Los Angeles, Woodland Hills is about as far away from the hustle and bustle of urban Los Angeles as it gets: in fact, it’s on the westernmost edge of Los Angeles, cradled between the Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway Park and the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve. However, the Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway Park and the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve aren’t your only two options if you’re out to witness a little bit of nature’s beauty. Besides the characteristic Californian beaches a short car ride away, the neighborhood is dotted with parks, trees, and as the name implies, as you travel over the city borders and out of the neighborhood, you’ll find yourself surrounded by beautiful expanses of woodlands (and even a few hills). However, if exploring nature isn’t high on your priority list, Woodland Hills has got you covered regardless.

Despite being on the far edge of Los Angeles, Woodland Hills is far from dull and boring. With a vibrant restaurant scene, casual connoisseurs and avid foodies will have a ball checking out the many different places to eat and styles of food that can be found in the Woodland Hills neighborhood. Besides constantly revealing interesting spots to get fantastic food in, Woodland Hills hosts and is in close proximity to a number of events that go on year round, like the Santa Monica Classic 5k/10k, and the Cinespia Outdoor Movies summer season. Warm year round, Woodland Hills is always able to host exciting events, even though it has the region's (relatively) most extreme weather, meaning simply that the winters are colder than the surrounding areas (though never really cold) and the summers are hotter (though not by much). This is caused by the neighborhoods geographical situation in the Valley, but it hasn’t stopped the residents from enjoying their time there, building parks and country clubs that are enjoyed year round by visitors and residents alike. However, Woodland Hills has had quite a few notable residents in its time, due to its unique relationship to Hollywood.

Woodland Hills is home to the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital, which is a hospital, nursing home, and acute-care hospital facility that is exclusively used by professionals who were a part of the film and television industry. Dedicated in 19489 specifically for motion picture industry professionals in need of medical care, the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital has attracted movie stars ever since and is known for its exceptional care services. Its administrators currently operate six other outpatient health centers throughout the greater Los Angeles area, and its doctors are dedicated to providing top-notch medical care and privacy for movies stars in need of assistance. However, many stars come to Woodland Hills to live purely to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and wonderful standard of living, including John Feldmann, Sara Paxton, and Geoffrey Lewis.
