Bounded by Oxnard on the north, Woodman on the west, Burbank on the south, and Fulton on the east.
Populated by many ranch-style houses the San Fernando Valley is known for, Area C is home to multi-generational families. A few are the original owners from the 1950's but as time passes, many young families have discovered the neighborhood as a safe place to raise their children. It is a walking neighborhood where neighbors know neighbors and look out for each other, including participation in our Neighborhood Watch. With the exception of the apartment buildings on our western border of Woodman Avenue and southern border of Burbank Boulevard, the majority of the residences are single-family.
We are home to opossum, raccoons, coyotes, and hawks as well as many bird species including the occasional wild parrots. It is not unusual to see migratory birds such as egrets perched in the tall trees on their way to the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Preserve.
Our local public schools are Erwin Street Elementary, Robert A. Millikan Middle School (Sherman Oaks), Ulysses S. Grant High School and Jack London Continuation High School. Next door to Valley College to the east, we are part of the "college vibe" and enjoy the many events at the college within walking distance.
With the Orange Line crossing thru the middle of Area C, we have the benefit of the adjacent bikeway and walking path, enjoyed by cyclists and joggers and dog walkers alike. One of the two stops in Valley Glen is in Area C at Woodman/Oxnard (aka Woodman) with the other stop on our border at Fulton/Burbank (aka Valley College).
