West Toluca Lake is a sliver of land in the San Fernando Valley
Region of Los Angeles. Its borders are Vineland Ave. in the east, Riverside Dr. in the west, and Camarillo Street in the north. As one might expect, it lies west of of Toluca Lake, and the two districts share many characteristics, including close proximity to green spaces—North Hollywood Park, South Weddington Park, the Santa Monica Mountains—and strong freeway access—to the 101 and 134, specifically.
The best local commerce and culture for West Toluca Lake Residents lies just to the north in the North Hollywood Arts District. This area boasts old-timey movie theaters, shops, cafes, and galleries. Between the 101 and the 134, West Toluca Lake is a reasonable locale from which to commute, and prospective residents who are car-less will note that walkability and bike-ability in the area are both relatively high. North Hollywood Station is also within spitting distance, enabling cross-county public transit.
