Woodland Hills is OK but Calabasas is better for a family. It's more suburb feel, right next door to Woodland Hills and has great schools. The only thing I liked about Woodland Hills was the convenience to go shopping. Woodland Hills has way more apartment complexes than Calabasas but you should be able to find a small house or townhome to rent. It gets very hot in Calabasas but it's the dry heat not that awful muggy heat. But plan on turning on the AC full time May - September.

If your kid is not even in school yet, then either one is fine but since you mentioned liking Boston aesthetically do note there is *zero* aesthetic value in Woodland Hills. At least in Calabasas if you live on the Malibu side it's actually quite nice. Having grown up in Boston and lived in that part of town for 10 years, I simply loved it but if you can't stand heat or LA traffic then you might not like it. Calabasas is not cheap, decent small starter home probably 650-750K.

I can recommend Agoura West Valley Pediatric. They have 2 offices and went there for many years with no complaints. All the doctors are nice.

Is there children's museum or museum of science around?

You do realize all this information is at your finger tips?

It's one thing to ask about an area(neighborhoods) and opinions, but you need to do some of your own research. Many things you are asking are answered in a simple Google search.

Didn't you visit the area before accepting the position? I hope not.

You need to a be a little more on the ball when you're doing a cross country move.

Is woodland hills a family place?
Can my kid play safely outside in the park? Also I see lots of posts saying woodland hills is too hot In the summer and colder in the winter, how hotter or cooler it will be? About half yrs you need your AC on?


What should we expect about this moving? Does woodland hills have lots of activities for little kids?
I am also looking for the recos for good pediatrics for my boy too.

I am also curisous anyone had the same move? How do you like it? Since we are close to leave, kind of hestitate to leave boston especially boston is so beautiful in the fall.
Thanks
Since you kid is not of school age, It's a good time to temp rent and get a feel for the area and surrounding communities. Then you can make an informed decision on permanent housing.

thanks everybody. I haven't checked the posts for a while. I saw all good suggestion.
Now I am taking corporate housing for 2 months and then I can decide to rent or buy.
I have 2 options for corporate housing
1. Eaves at woodland hills
2. Triana

any idea? I have to decide before any visit. if i am single, i would just choose randomly. but because of baby, it makes me too cautious. Thanks for any input.

I wouldn't take any if i relied on yelp's reviews which showed both places are horrible. but have to choose one from them.

Thanks,

I almost moved into the Triana. It's really nice and walkable to many amenities. I'm sure your living experience will depend on how loud or quiet your neighbors are, which is tough to predict online. I don't know much about Eaves except it looks like its on the same street as the Triana. Both are in nice, safe neighborhoods.

It is Kidspace in pasadena. The Huntington gardens and library has a kid's garden and some children programs. Not sure what else as I don't have kids...
