WHAT PEOPLE LOVE

The homes in Northwest Glendale are filled with character and everyone loves the wide avenues lined with mature trees. The Jacaranda trees burst into bloom in May and the area is filled with their lavender loveliness.

Brand Park and the Brand Park Art and Music Library are major attractions. Kenneth Village provides a charming small town experience where neighbors greet each other in the early evenings and weekends. The Friends of Brand Library regularly host live performances and art shows.
