Woodland Hills

Woodland Hills is a community within the City of Los Angeles. It is located in the southwestern
area of the San Fernando Valley, northeast of Calabasas and west of Tarzana. To the north
Woodland Hills is bordered by West Hills, Canoga Park, and Winnetka. Running east-west
through the community is U.S. Route 101 (Ventura Freeway) and Ventura Boulevard, which
starts in Woodland Hills.

History

Victor Girard Kleinberger (later known as simply Victor Girard) bought 2,886 acres (12 km²) in
the area and founded Girard in 1922. He sought to attract residents and businesses by
developing the land, advertising in newspapers, and planting 120,000 trees. Although much of
his development provided a dubious facade of economic activity in Girard (local lore has it that
in order to attract development he erected false store fronts on Ventura Blvd., for which he
spent time in jail), the Girard Golf Course completed in 1925 continues to operate today as the
Woodland Hills Country Club, and his scheme was successful in attracting interest in the
community.
*
The town suffered through the Great Depression yet survived. In 1941, the community was
renamed Woodland Hills, an appropriate name owing to all the trees that Girard had planted
years earlier. Harry Warner came along in the 1940s and bought 1,100 acres (4.5 km²) in the
area for a horse ranch. The modern Warner Center commercial zone is named for Harry and
features several high-rise buildings, hotels, and shopping centers in Woodland Hills. A major
transit hub — the western end of the Orange Line — opened here in October 2005.

The population living in Woodland Hills nears 70,000.

Education

Schools serving Woodland Hills are operated by the Los Angeles Unified School District. The
schools include Lockhurst Elementary School, Woodlake Elementary School, Woodland Hills
Elementary School, Calabash St. Elementary School, Hale Middle School, Parkman Middle
School, and Louisville High School (on the Calabasas border). El Camino Real High School
and William Howard Taft High School are multiple United States Academic Decathlon winners.

Los Angeles Pierce College is also located in Woodland Hills.
