Westlake Village is the legacy of a ‘city in the country’ vision conceived back the 1960’s when the 12,000 acre cattle property known as Russell Ranch was purchased by the American-Hawaiian Steamship Company with plans to build a thriving, picturesque, self sufficient community using the lake as a focal point. It is located some 40 miles to the west of downtown Los Angeles and straddles the boundary between Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Californian law requires that cities belong to one county only so the western two thirds of the original Westlake community on the Ventura County side are part of Thousand Oaks City in Ventura whilst the eastern third is incorporated in California as Westlake Village.
Recognised as one of the most affluent communities in the greater Los Angeles area,Westlake Village is surrounded by predominantly rural countryside and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. There are plenty of hiking and horse trails through areas like Chesebro Canyon, Pentachaeta, Malibu Creek State Park, and Wildwood Park. There are five parks within the City providing a range of recreational facilities for residents and several golf courses.
Westlake Village is noted for its prominent business and commercial community and is the headquarters for several major international and national corporations such as the Dole Food Company, Jafra Cosmetics, K-Swiss and many others.
The city is linked to the rest of Los Angeles by the Ventura Freeway. The Pacific Coast Highway and Ronald Reagan Freeway are also close by.
