Reseda Reviews

Reseda is nowadays the better living place, where the community services are furnished. I luckily live nearby the Northridge hospital, where I will give the first birth. Staffs working at the Northridge clinic are approachable and helpful, especially my nurse, who contacts with me via her phone number and provides essential advice about the labor preparation for me. However, I felt there was some boundary in the background and culture when I interacted with one of their staff, who reacted uncontrollably to me. I hope that their customer service will be improved as the staff knows how to be calm and patient with customers. Lastly, there is an alarming rate in increasing local fast food restaurant in Reseda; this leads to the obesity rate for the consumers due to the restaurant availability.

I like that it is a small community in the San Fernando valley rather than in metro L.A. There is much less traffic, plenty of places to eat and shop. Everything is here, with no real need to travel over to metro L.A.
I enjoy living in an area with a lot of green spaces, which is another reason I prefer the valley. There are shopping 3 main shopping malls within a short distance from me. The backdrop of the mountains to the north, west and south make for a very nice view.
One of my favorite drives is coming down Winnetka heading north.
There are a lot of businesses that have been around for a very long time. The people are friendly. The workers at the grocery store I frequent know me and treat me with great customer service.
I would like to see more community involvement activities. There are a few areas that appear to be more depressed than others. It would be nice if those areas were updated some.
Great area to live. Overall very quiet suburb. It’s not anything what the negative stereotypes suggest. The downtown area on Sherman way has huge potential and should be getting revitalized very soon. Area has a lot of history and potential. The main street down reseda Blvd (shops etc) look like they need updating. House prices are still affordable if u can get in, do it soon as prices are rising. Probably in antisipation to revitalization which is slowly in progress. Only lacks the walking shopping district like most cities have, but those are close by.
