Tarzana

d-tarzanaAbout Tarzana

Tarzana, close to bustling and thriving Los Angeles, yet at a distance to give you peace and quiet.

Tarzana is bounded by Reseda on the north, Woodland Hills on the west, Encino on the east and the Santa Monica Mountains and Topanga State Park on the south. Freeways close, there is convenient access to the Studios, downtown Los Angeles, LAX and the most beautiful California beaches.

Part of Tarzana’s approximately 8 square miles slopes gently up the Santa Monica Mountains and most of Tarzana’s residents live in single-family homes in the desirable foothills, south of Ventura Blvd.  The narrow roads and lack of sidewalks give the community a rural feeling. Streets tend to wind and stop in cul-de-sacs in the foothills, adding to the sense of privacy and security of the mostly sprawling ranch-style homes on large lots. The setting, coupled with good public schools, has made Tarzana attractive to buyers. Tarzana is in the Los Angeles Unified School District and schools perform well above average, perfect for families who seek a good solid education for their youngsters.

Ventura Boulevard itself is a draw, the address for high-rent businesses, boutiques and restaurants. The congested thoroughfare is a good place to grab a cappuccino or a new hairstyle.  The area north of Ventura Blvd. is made up of medium-density housing, with fewer houses and more apartment buildings, however, there is a uniquely designed area meant to emulate a more rural lifestyle called Melody Acres.

Some popular areas of Tarzana south of Ventura Blvd. include Braemar and Monte Verde. There are a number of luxurious gated communities, including Silver Hawk and Mulholland Park. Tarzana includes two country clubs with world-class golf courses nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains- El Caballero Country Club and Braemar Country Club.

History

 Tarzana takes its name from Tarzan, the famous storybook jungle character created by author Edgar Rice Burroughs, who made this area his home in the early 1900’s. He purchased 550 acres from the estate of Harrison Gray Otis, the former publisher of the Los Angeles Times. Burroughs renamed the property Tarzana Ranch and in 1923 he subdivided a portion of his land to promote the sale of lots for homes. This was known as the Tarzana Tract, roughly 100 acres that ran from present day Ventura Boulevard to Tarzana Drive and was bounded by Mecca Avenue and Avenida Oriente. The actual community was not founded and officially named Tarzana until 1930 when the Tarzana Post Office was commissioned, though it was referred to as Tarzana dating back to 1922.

 Parks and recreation

The Tarzana Recreation Center has a gymnasium that also is used as an auditorium; the building’s capacity is 600. The park also has barbecue pits, a lighted baseball diamond, lighted outdoor basketball courts, a children’s play area, a community room, an indoor gymnasium without weights, picnic tables and lighted volleyball courts.

The Tarzana Community and Cultural Center, was established to provide a facility – in a park-like setting – dedicated to the community for meetings, activities, and programs that nurture the community spirit, the arts, education and leadership, and to preserve the history and unique cultural qualities of Tarzana. The center features a rose garden, children’s garden, gazebo, Koi pond, and various conference spaces.

 Some Filming locations

Portola Middle School in Tarzana was used as a location for the films Thirteen, The Karate Kid and Akeelah and the Bee. Rocko’s Modern Life was animated in Tarzana. Tarzana Armenian Deli was used as a location for the HBO TV show Six Feet Under.
