Resting at the northeasterly base of the Verdugo Mountains and overlooking the Oakmont Golf Course and Country Club are the most beautiful neighborhoods of Oakmont and just to the north, Oakmont Woods. Within these neighborhoods there are three distinct development pockets. The area immediately above the Oakmont Country Club, developed primarily in the 1930s; the 1980s developed area just north of the country club; and the Oakmont Woods neighborhood, which was developed mostly in the 1960’s.
The early Oakmont neighborhood, developed in the 1930’s, is situated adjacent to the country club. The streets are beautifully lined with lush mature trees and many of the homes have large, well landscaped front yards. One of the most beautiful streets in the City of Glendale, Beaudry Boulevard, leads up to the Beaudry Loop Trail, Beaudry South Motorway (fire road) entrance in the Verdugo Mountains.
The Oakmont View development northwest of early Oakmont features many large and newer modern and modern-traditional style hillside homes with balconies and views of the Crescenta Valley and San Gabriel Mountains. Located at the top of Oakmont View Drive is a nice neighborhood park with two tennis courts named Oakmont View Park.
Traveling out of Oakmont View Drive onto La Crescenta Avenue and heading north to the next street you will find one of Glendale’s most hidden neighborhoods, Oakmont Woods. The entrance to the 1960’s developed Oakmont Woods neighborhood includes a nice neighborhood gateway sign on La Crescenta Avenue. With ingress and egress to the neighborhood limited to only one street over a small Verdugo Wash bridge, this neighborhood enjoys very little outside neighborhood traffic. Nestled within the Oakmont Woods neighborhood is Camp Bob Waldorf, which offers summer camps and weekend retreats for youths and is owned and operated by Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles.
