Woodland Hills Homes for Sale
If you want to live in a suburban community, but still want easy access to the best of what downtown Los Angeles has to offer, Woodland Hills is definitely a place to consider. This neighborhood is located just east of Calabasas in southwestern San Fernando Valley and is bordered by the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains to the south.
Good hiking trails in the Santa Monica Mountains are just 10 to 15 minutes away, which is always a bonus if you’re seeking to live a fit and active lifestyle. The Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve is just along the western boundary of Woodland Hills and also offers an extensive trail network that is suited for mountain biking and hiking.
For the best panoramic views of lush Woodland Hills, its neighborhoods, as well as the coast and other nearby areas in the San Fernando Valley, head on to Topanga Overlook. Woodland Hills also has plenty of recreation options for kids. The Warner Center Park and Serrania Park, for example, both offer children’s play areas and picnic tables for families to enjoy.
Woodland Hills has also long been home to the Motion Picture & Television Fund and its retirement community, where people who used to work for the television and motion picture industry spend their golden years. This has placed Woodland Hills firmly on the Hollywood map.
