The Glenoaks Canyon neighborhood is located in the eastern part of Glendale, east of City Center and south of the Chevy Chase neighborhood, and is one of the city’s most beautiful niche locations. The canyon geography creates a close-knit neighborhood atmosphere. East Glenoaks Boulevard is the only means of entering and exiting the canyon area, providing this neighborhood with a unique charm all its own.
Most of the homes in Glenoaks Canyon are older, with a nice combination of Spanish and Mission Revivals mixed with Ranch and a few Tudors and Mid-Century homes. Typical of many of the nice Glendale hillside neighborhoods and true to its name Glenoaks, many mature oak trees exist in this canyon and above the homes on the hillside chaparral. In addition to the geographic beauty and character of this neighborhood, the City of Glendale has developed three public parks within this neighborhood alone.
Scholl Canyon is defined in some of the City of Glendale neighborhood descriptions and maps as a “neighborhood” but since there are no homes and like the San Rafael Hills neighborhood only a large Glendale park, we consider the entire neighborhood to be represented as Glenoaks Canyon. In addition, geographically, both Glenoaks and Scholl Canyons share the same geography as one canyon with only one small ridge separating the two in the upper reaches of the canyon.
