Description for Calabasas

Calabasas is a city of approximately 23,000 residents located at the western end of the San Fernando Valley, bordered by the cities of Woodland Hills, West Hills, Hidden Hills, Agoura Hills, Topanga, and Malibu. The origin of the name of the city is up for debate. Some say it is named after the Spanish word for pumpkin, others maintain it is derived from the Chumash word, "Calahoosa". Either way, Calabasas is a terrific place to live. Calabasas' city logo, that of a red-tailed hawk flying over the Santa Monica Mountains symbolizes the semi-rural way of life and the preservation of the area's natural beauty.

In order to honor this commitment, Calabasas has been exceptionally proactive in passing ordinances to protect open space, and the health of its residents. In February 2006, the "comprehensive second-hand smoke control ordinance" passed with flying colors. This ordinance prohibits smoking in ALL public places with in the city, where others may be subject to secondhand smoke. The ordinance was later expanded in 2008, requiring 80% of rental apartment buildings to be designated as non-smoking. There is nary a plastic bag to be found in any grocery store in Calabasas. If you'd like a paper bag, it will cost you 10 cents, encouraging the use of recyclable grocery sacks. The city of Calabasas played a significant role in saving Ahmanson Ranch, a 2983 acre parcel of land, from development. Sold to the Santa Monica Mountain Conservancy in 2003 for $150 million, this area, known as "Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Space Preserve", provides much delight to hikers, bikers, horseback riders, and nature lovers.

Calabasas has its own quaint trolley transportation system. The trolley runs throughout the city including "Old Town Calabasas", host to the Leonis Adobe Building. There are also many delicious restaurants and shops, as well as a weekly farmers' market in Old Town Calabasas. Calabasas provides a nice balance between city life, with its proximity to the San Fernando Valley, and its many rural neighborhoods. There is no shortage of equestrian activities, tack shops, and ranches in Calabasas. Calabasas Saddlery is a favorite local tack shop. You will find the entrance to Malibu Creek State park in Calabasas as well as many equestrian centers, such as The Calabasas Equestrian Center on Mulholland. There is even an equine rescue center, Dude's Ranch Equine Rescue Center. Calabasas is such a "horsey" community that in 2005, The Horse Channel set up headquarters there. This channel hosts rodeo shows, competitions, classic horse themed movies, and children's programming.
