All the neighborhoods discussed in this thread are very safe (Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, Encino, Tarzana, etc.).

As for walkable, you should put the image of San Francisco or New York out of your mind. Los Angeles has walkable areas but nothing like those two transit oriented cities.

My quick take:

1. Sherman Oaks is more interesting than Woodland Hills and does not get quite as hot in the summer. Sherman Oaks also has the advantage of being much closer to other happening parts of LA like Hollywood, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, etc. Sherman Oaks is more walkable than Woodland Hills.

2. The ony advantages I see for a single person in Woodland Hills are: 1) you are a little closer to the beach (in this case Malibu).; and 2) There are more new apartment complexes so there might be more housing choices for someone relocating like you are.

North of Magnolia used to be considered Van Nuys.
