Tarzana is comfortable in the sense that all shops and everything one needs are within local distance. Commuting and parking are also very convenient in the neighborhood as there are barely any restrictions except for street cleaning. There quite several things I would like to see a change in the neighborhood. There are some areas such as Reseda, that does not feel very safe in terms of some of the people that are nearby- specifically by Reseda park. There also aren't many parks available in the area for children and it would be nice if that increases, to make this neighborhood more family- friendly. I also do not feel safe being out on the streets by myself during nighttime and would love if there was more of a nightlife present.

I love living in Tarzana. I was born and raised here. I was born at the local hospital, Tarzana Hospital. I went to public school from K-12 and enjoyed every second. The area is diverse and clean. The people are all extremely friendly. There is plenty to do and it is adjacent to many other great neighborhoods. In addition, both, my mother and father were raised here as well. Feels like a community!
This town is very family friendly with tons of local activities and shops. Restaurants are diverse, people are friendly, and parking is easy to find!
