Los Angeles, California has the shape of a broad oval, stretching from the beach in Santa Monica to the border of Ventura County. It has a dry, desert to chaparral, coastal scrub, and forested mountains, and it is linked to its neighbors by the colorful agriculture festivals of Pomona and the classic movie factories of Burbank. The sprawling urban area is crisscrossed by freeways, the tallest of which is the 605 Interstate Freeway that runs north-south.

PARK

Marion Marx, wife of Zeppo Marx, and Barbara Stanwyck started Marwyck Ranch as a horse breeding farm. The original house and a small portion of the ranch still exist, and is managed by the city as Oakridge Estate Park. Northridge was known as the "Horse Capital of the West," with regular Sunday horse shows, annual stampedes, and country fairs.The Northridge Recreation Center, located at 18300 Lemarsh St., has an indoor gymnasium, without weights, which may also be used as an auditorium. Its capacity is 400. The park also has barbecue pits, a lighted baseball diamond, lighted indoor basketball courts, lighted outdoor basketball courts, a children's play area, a community room, picnic tables, a lighted soccer field, and lighted tennis courts.

Zelzah Acres became the name of one of those early housing tracts carved from the former enormous Rancho Ex-Mission San Fernando lands joining nearby towns of Chatsworth Park, Lankershim, Owensmouth, San Fernando and Van Nuys. The post office and train depot were renamed North Los Angeles in 1929 and finally Northridge in 1938. The California State University, Northridge is home to the CSUN Botanic Garden, as well as the Donald E. Bianchi Planetarium. Residents of Northridge can also enjoy the local Recreation Center – complete with outdoor heated pool on the grounds – as well as easy access to nearby parks and protected natural areas such as the Chatsworth Reservoir or the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park to the north and Lake Balboa to the south.
