Toluca Lake is a neighborhood in the city of Los Angeles located in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles County, California, 12 miles (19 km) northwest of Downtown. The name is also given to a private natural lake fed by the Los Angeles River and maintained by neighboring property owners.
The history of Toluca Lake can be traced to the days of the Tongva Indians, followed by Spanish colonization and Mexican independence. Toluca Lake was part of the early rancho system. The original Toluca Lake was divided, with the neighborhood being known as Forman Toluca Ranch. In 1923, investors bought and developed the land as “Toluca Lake Park”.
Like many City of Los Angeles neighborhoods, Toluca Lake has a central business district and mail can be addressed to either “Toluca Lake, CA 91602” or “Los Angeles, CA 91602.”
The neighborhood has a distinguished history of notable residents. Ronald and Nancy Reagan held their wedding reception in Toluca Lake. More recently, it has been the home of famous entertainers such as Miley Cyrus, Viola Davis, and Melissa McCarthy.
The Toluca Lake neighborhood is situated on 1.22 square miles of the southeastern San Fernando Valley. The Mapping L.A. section of the Los Angeles Times website describes it as bounded on the south by Universal City, on the west by Studio City, on the north by North Hollywood and on the east by the city of Burbank.
The Toluca Lake Chamber of Commerce website states that the district is not only a neighborhood in Los Angeles but that it “spills over into Burbank” and “Political entities and others, such as the Greater Toluca Lake Neighborhood Council each draw their own boundaries to suit specific needs. For example, the Toluca Lake Chamber of Commerce serves the entire community in Burbank and Los Angeles, while the City of Los Angeles understandably considers it’s neighborhood called Toluca Lake to be entirely within its city boundaries”.
