West Hills

West Hills is a city in Los Angeles County, California with a population of about 40,000 people. The city is located in the western end of San Fernando Valley, off Valley Circle Blvd and 101 Freeway.

The present day West Hills was once the homeland of Native Americans, the Tongva-Fernandeno and CHumash-Venturano tribes, that lived in the Simi Hills and near Bell Creek. The village Hu’wam was located at the base of El Scorpion Peak, near the Bell Canyon Park.

West Hills was originally part of Owensmouth and renamed Canoga Park. In 1987 residents of the western part of Canoga Park petitioned to separate from the larger community and establish their own city called West Hills.
