No, it is not gang infested. It just dropped several notches on the socioeconomic scale. It is also much more crowded. Lots of working class people in the central 80% of the valley (meaning the flat part of the valley as opposed to the hillsides.)

It is probably more crime ridden than it was 30 years ago and it looks uglier but probably because it is so crowded and full of a lot of people who don't have a lot of time or money to spruce things up. That's my guess.

I lived in Canoga Park from 1962 to 1988 and I have worked there off and on from the late 1990 to 2006.

Later in the 1980s my buddy and I would hop the fence in there and party.

No. There is actually a large gang problem. Most are in North Hollywood, Van Nuys, Panorama City, and the northern valley. The good areas are below the 101, the west side of Woodland Hills, the east and south sides of Burbank, and the north, west, and east sides of Glendale. So, pretty much anything up in the hills or in Glendale is good. Parts of NH and VN could be compared to some of the okay/bad areas of South Central.
