What I like about Chatsworth is the sense of community it has. I currently attend Chatsworth Highschool, not a day goes by when I tell an adult that I am a student and at least three tell me that they also attended in their teenage years. I also love the loving personality I find many have. Neighbors smile and wave to each other as they pass by on an evening walk. Usually, children play in the street in front of their homes; with the knowledge of safety, they have, because of cautious drivers. In all Chatsworth is a lively, safe, and nice community.

Growing up in Chatsworth was a great experience. Chatsworth is a friendly and diverse city. It's got plenty of grocery stores, gyms and parks to promote a healthy lifestyle. There are plenty of great public schools available within walking distance from homes. Chatsworth is home to many small business, including many ethnic restaurants which keeps things exciting when going out for dinner. It is also conveniently located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley with California State University only a 10 minute drive away and only a 30 minute drive from major areas such as Glendale, North Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles. The town is a little run down and could use some upgrades, but overall, Chatsworth is a fun and safe place to live.
Chatsworth is a really interesting city... Located in the San Fernando Valley, its neighboring cities are Northridge and Canoga Park, which seem to have more diversity than Chatsworth itself. A very quiet and secluded corner of the San Fernando Valley, there is not much to do here except maybe hike in the Santa Susana Mountains. Sometimes, I feel that Chatsworth lacks the diversity to thrive. It was difficult going to Elementary school in my hometown, but I am glad I had the opportunity to go elsewhere and experience places that were rich in multiplicities and diversities, with people from many walks of life. Chatsworth is good for what it is, a quaint and quiet suburb.
