Valley Glen presents a dynamic and diverse community with an excellent location in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. It is valuable for commuters because of quick access to nearby North Hollywood, Burbank, Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, and Studio City.
The “Great Wall“ that goes along the Tujunga Wash’s concrete sides is a cultural landmark. At half a mile, a length of 2,754 feet, this is one of the world’s longest murals and depicts California’s rich history. It was designed by Judith Baca as her first mural and was amazingly done with the aid of more than 400 community youth and artists! The mural rises 13 feet high, is painted directly on the concrete in connected panels that were each designed by a different artist, and it covers over six city blocks!
The one-mile portion of the once-natural Tujunga Wash features native landscaping, walking paths, a view of the Santa Monica Mountains, a meandering stream, interpretive displays, and a shaded picnic area.
As an innovative project, runoff is taken from the flood control channel. A new stream is created that contains native plants that help clean the water and establish a habitat for small animals. With average rainfall, as much as 325,000 gallons of water will flow through and produce enough recharge of groundwater that could provide 760 families of four with a year’s drinking water!
