Welcome to Woodland Hills
Woodland Hills is renowned as being one of the premier pockets in Los Angeles real estate. With a population of over 65,000, the city is large and constantly buzzing with activity. Designer Victor Girard fulfilled his vision of creating a neighborhood of country estates in the 1920s with the city, and the community still maintains a country vibe, ranch-style homes dominating the space.
Conveniently located near the 101 freeway and Topanga Canyon, Woodland Hills is easily accessible and allows residents to move throughout Los Angeles with ease. Because of the neighborhood’s proximity to the Santa Monica Mountains, nature is celebrated throughout winding and tree-lined streets
About one-third of every household in the city includes a child, and it is a desirable community for singles, couples, and families alike. The majority of people who reside in Woodland Hills hold white collar jobs, working in executive or managerial positions.
The community of Woodland Hills is incredibly diverse, having more people with Iranian and Croatian ancestry than almost any neighborhood in the US. Nearly 5% of its residents speak Persian, which is higher than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
The two main streets of Woodland Hills are Topanga Canyon Boulevard and Ventura Boulevard. With plenty of options for dining, entertainment, and shopping, these streets are typically the most popular places to go out in the neighborhood. Westfield Topanga is the major mall on Topanga Canyon, and the street also has a movie theatre and a Costco. Ventura Boulevard has plenty of dining options that range from Mexican to Japanese to steakhouses. Plus, the street has several different grocery stores including a Sprouts, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s.

Things to Do
From hiking trails and parks to scenic overlooks and mountain biking trails, Woodland Hills is full of outdoor activities. The Woodland Hills Country Club offers great opportunities for members, and with a golf course, fine-dining restaurant, swimming pool, and more, it’s definitely a community hub. Horseback riding is another popular activity for residents, and with three stables nearby and plenty of trails, it’s easy to understand why.
