Toluca Lake is a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley
region of Los Angeles County that encompasses territory belonging to multiple distinct municipalities: some to Burbank and some to the City of Los Angeles. It is circumscribed by Studio City
, Valley Village
, North Hollywood
, and Burbank
and is bordered, roughly, by Lankershim Blvd. in the west and Clybourn Ave. in the east. Toluca Lake itself is a small body of water in the southeast of the neighborhood that is surrounded by private homes and is inaccessible to the public.
Toluca Lake's low population density and a high median income confirm what you might already suspect—that it is widely considered one of the nicest areas of the San Fernando Valley in which to live. Residents laud its small-town energy and well-kept public spaces. Toluca Lake's privacy and semi-suburban feel are balanced by strong centrality and accessibility; the 134 and 170 freeways are both within spitting distance, making Toluca Lake a very reasonable locale from which to commute. Walkability is relatively high.
