Beachwood Canyon Neighborhood
Upper Beachwood Canyon is home to one the original Hollywood Hills luxury neighborhoods, Hollywoodland (1923). In fact, the Hollywood Sign was a bulb-lit real estate advertisement promoting the subdivision with the full name: HOLLYWOODLAND. The letters L-A-N-D were removed in later years during repair work. In fact, the once-wooden real estate sign (replaced with sturdier metal letters which are obviously not prone to rot and decay) was only meant as a temporary marker.
The entrance to Hollywoodland is marked by two stone towers at The Village (a.k.a. Beachwood Village) which is home to several small mom ‘n pops businesses including two anchor tenants: Beachwood Market and Beachwood Café. The area from The Village down to Franklin Avenue is Lower Beachwood Canyon which is comprised of single-family homes and apartment buildings. Beachwood Drive is the main neighborhood thoroughfare.
Nature lovers feel at home in Beachwood Canyon for a few reasons. It abuts Griffith Park, Lake Hollywood Park, and the Hollywood Reservoir giving locals quick access to hiking trails, open spaces, and gorgeous views of Downtown Los Angeles and the L.A. Basin. Horseback tours of Griffith Park start as Sunset Ranch which sits at the terminus of Beachwood Drive.
Years of tree planting and landscaping have made Beachwood Canyon a verdant oasis. Spotting wild animals is a common, if not daily experience if you live in certain parts of the neighborhood.
