Rancho Park

Rancho Park, though a small residential neighborhood in West Los Angeles, is one of the few districts in Los Angeles where fall foliage can be seen. Nestled between Westwood and Cheviot Hills, Rancho Park is mostly filled with single-family homes and tree-lined streets. This enclave of Spanish Colonial bungalows and ranch houses draws young professionals and families and is home to residents working in a variety of professional occupations. The district's boundaries are generally considered to be the San Diego Freeway on the west, Olympic Boulevard on the north, Manning Avenue and Beverly Glen Boulevard on the east, and the Santa Monica Freeway on the south. Rancho Park was developed in the 1920s as a middle-class area, and most of its housing stock consists of Spanish Colonial bungalows and ranch houses. Today, many of the modest sized homes have been rehabbed into larger and more modern architecture.
