There is a lot more to Encino than most people realize. It has an interesting history as well.

Welcome to Encino, California!

Encino is one of those fantastic hidden gems of Los Angeles. There is a lot more to Encino than most people realize. It has an interesting history as well. It was first established way back in 1845. Before that, It was a piece of land given to Mission Indians. At the time, Encino was actually called Rancho Los Encinos which stood for Ranch of the Evergreens.

Neighboring cities to Encino are Tarzana and Sherman Oaks and Ventura Blvd acts has its connecting line. Its population recorded back in 2000 is approximately 40,000. The biggest industry that dominates the area is the Health Care industry. It's not a popular place for the entertainment industry. Leave that up to Hollywood I guess. The only major Entertainment company with a headquarters in Encino is Enoki Films.

So there are plenty of options for children’s education which makes Encino an ideal city for families with children.

Encino is also home to one of the biggest parks in Los Angeles. The Los Encino State Historic Park is 5 acres in size! That’s a big park. It even has a pond and natural springs. Very zen. Then there is the Sepulveda Dam Recreation Area. There is a sport it is famous for that people would never guess. At least in Los Angeles. Cricket! Yes Cricket. Since 1888, it has hosted several events for Cricket in Los Angeles for many stars and tournaments. It's the place where the history of the game Cricket has been set for the city of Los Angeles. But it doesn’t end there. Another sport that Encino is very well established in is Golf. There is the Encino Golf Course as well as the Balboa Golf Course. Combining these two courses, there are a total of 36 holes to play. And these aren’t just plain and simple courses. You can’t forget the facilities and amenities they offer from its banquet rooms to lounges and a restaurant. Then there is also the Balboa Sports Complex which is also in Encino. It hosts a plethora of activities with its baseball diamond, outdoor basketball courts, indoor basketball courts, community room, football field, handball, soccer field, tennis courts, volleyball courts and even a Gymnasium! This place is amazing and a real asset to any city. Other places worth mentioning is the off-leash dog park and Sepulveda Gardens spanning 16 acres. So be ready to be inspired.

A city with an excellent selection of schools in its diverse educational district and lots of choices for parks and recreation, its no wonder people are taken by Encino once they discover this hidden gem of Los Angeles.
