Canoga Park is a vibrant neighborhood with an array of small family-owned businesses and restaurants. Take a stroll down Sherman Way and experience the assemblage of resale shops and street art. This area is very community-focused, with street-fairs and different cultural events throughout the year, as well as weekly farmer's markets and soccer matches in the park. This area is dominated by Spanish-speakers and English-speakers alike. The diversity--in both people and businesses-- is one of the awesome things about this neighborhood.

Canoga Park may be the next big area for gentrification. You can start to see it along Sherman Way. From the Follow your Heart (vegan Restaurant), to bookstores (yes actual independent book stores), antique shops, a bike shop, and independent coffee shops (Bee's Boba) and a theater, it is easy to envision a changing community. The diversity is great, and seems safe. I've lived there for the past year and have had no problems. Will be interesting to see what happens over the next few years. One of the few places you can still get a home for a reasonable price in LA.
Canoga Park is a city divided. On one side of Canoga, you have a very quiet, clean, family friendly neighborhood. The other side of Canoga Park is plagued with crime, gangs and an increasing homeless population. I would like to see the gap closed between the two sides to make Canoga Park an overall safer place to live. I believe the city should take better care of the community by cleaning up trash, graffiti, fixing broken structures and investing in the community. I give Canoga Park a rating of 3 stars because I believe the Canoga Park is a great city but there is definitely room for improvement.
