Granada-Hills is a district in the San Fernando Valley located within the city of Los Angeles. It is located just north of the North Hills district, which is west of the Mission Hills and Sylmar districts. Granada Hills is accessible by the Ronald Reagan (CA 118) freeway and Interstate 405. Granada Hills started out as a farming and ranching community and has evolved into a thriving suburban community. Parts of the former citrus groves can still be seen as clusters of orange, lemon and grapefruit trees in some residential yards in the area. There are several parks in the Granada Hills area, such as O'Melveny Park and the more rustic Limekiln Canyon Park. O'Melveny Park has a small stream running through it and a grassy promontory from which to view the northeastern part of the San Fernando Valley. Limekiln Canyon Park has wilderness areas and canyon trails and a trail leading to Mission Point, the highest point in Granada Hills. The view of the San Fernando Valley from Mission Point (or "Mission Peak" as it is called by locals) is very beautiful, and when the weather is clear, one can see downtown Los Angeles and all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Limekiln Canyon Park is also home to a variety of wildlife such as mountain lions, mule deer, bobcats and quails and is a popular hiking and mountain biking area.

Granada Hills Weather & Climate

Southern California has a climate that is classified as Mediterranean. There are two distinct seasonal changes, categorized by the amount of rainfall received - a dry summer and wet winter with modest variation in temperature. In the dry season, a Pacific high-pressure system dominates the weather pattern creating warm and very dry air and a thick marine layer that typically advances inland during the night and burns off to hazy sunshine by midday. Surface pollutants trapped under the marine layer, or fog, create the Los Angeles area's infamous smog. In winter, the high system is no longer dominant and storms fed by subtropical moisture bring lots of rain into southern California during the months of November through March. Afternoon sea breezes of 10 to 15 mph are common. Strong offshore winds, known as Santa Ana winds are common, but rarely cause damage.
