Chatsworth, California – A City Rich In History, Surrounded by Nature

Found in the northwestern San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, Chatsworth has one of the lowest densities of any surrounding neighborhood with high income levels, excellent private and public school options, and easy access to areas all around.

Chatsworth is flanked by:

  • The Santa Susana Mountains on the north.
  • Northridge on the east.
  • Winnetka, Canoga Park, and West Hills on the south.
  • The Simi Hills, and unincorporated Los Angeles County and Ventura County on the west.

Two distinctive features of the city are the former Chatsworth Dam and Reservoir and the Chatsworth Transportation Center. Built in 1918 as part of the Los Angeles Aqueduct system, the Dam and Reservoir was taken out of service in 1969. Chatsworth Oaks Park and the Chatsworth Nature Preserve are located here giving views of migrating birds and other animals, and their sounds such as the coyotes calling in the evening. (Check out Rodney’s “Mid-Century Modern” drone video to see the vast expanse of this nature preserve).

The views of the rocky and dramatic Simi Hills surround the open space. The Chatsworth Transportation Center, a major transportation hub for the town and west valley, is in daily service providing commuters access to downtown LA, the Coast, North Hollywood, Simi Valley and Santa Clarita, among other stops.

Today, with a population of about 40,000 residents, Chatsworth is home to 22 preschools, 10 elementary schools, 10 middle schools, 7 high schools, approximately 30 churches, and several major corporations, such as 3M Corporation, Capstone Turbine, Hydraulics International, Regency Lighting and the production and distribution facilities of Lamps Plus.

Residents enjoy its multitude of horse trails, park and recreation areas, hiking trails and historic buildings. To learn more, visit
