Situated approximately 25 miles west of downtown Los Angeles (8 miles east of the Ventura County line), the City of Calabasas (approximately 24,000 population) is located in western Los Angeles County in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area and adjacent to the San Fernando Valley. While the newest city in Los Angeles County, the first recorded occupation in the area was by Chumash Native Americans who settled along the banks of Calabasas Creek during the mid- 1800s. Today, neighboring communities include Agoura Hills, Malibu, Westlake Village, and Hidden Hills. The City’s distinctive character is in part derived from its natural environment, oak-studded hillsides, and sprawling open space.
