Nestled in the San Fernando Valley along the Santa Monica Mountains, Woodland Hills is a neighborhood in the northern Los Angeles area known for its upscale amenities.
Named for the more than 120,000 trees that were planted by the community's founder, Woodland Hills offers a unique mix of natural splendor and city life for retirees. Surrounded by lush, green natural landscapes, the area has a host of outdoor delights that seniors can enjoy year-round in the beautiful, warm weather. These activities may include taking a hike at the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve or traveling to the famous beaches of Malibu, which are just a short drive away. The community is also regarded as a popular shopping destination and is known for having a well-established culinary scene, as well as a number of lively bars and music venues along Ventura Boulevard.
One thing seniors may need to keep in mind when exploring options in Woodland Hills is the cost of living. Just like the rest of the state, the average monthly cost of assisted living services in Woodland Hills is $4,500 per month, which is higher than the US national average cost of $4,000 per month, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2018.
