Hidden Hills is a city and gated community in the San Fernando Valley[6] region of Los Angeles County, California. It is located next to the city of Calabasas. It is notable for being home to many actors and celebrities. The population was 1,725 at the 2020 census.[5]

Geography and history

Hidden Hills is in the southern Simi Hills Transverse range near the Santa Monica Mountains in the western edge of San Fernando Valley, near the border with neighboring Ventura County.[7]

The community was designed and developed in the 1950s by A. E. Hanson, a Southern California landscape architect and planned community developer.[8][9] His earlier projects included Rolling Hills[10] and Palos Verdes Estates, and the 1920s Beverly Hills Harold Lloyd Estate "Greenacres". It is a gated residential community with a total area of 1.7 square miles (4.4 km2), all land. An elementary school is publicly accessible at one of the three gates to the community. The city has a summer camp for children, community and children's theatre programs, annual parades, carnivals, parties, welcome wagon, snow days,[clarification needed] and weekly community-wide barbecues during the summer.

Hidden Hills is bordered on the north by the nature reserve and greenbelt of the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve, a park with miles of equestrian, hiking, and mountain biking trails. Nearby to the south, is the pioneer Leonis Adobe National Historic Landmark, with gardens and a historical museum. It's across El Camino Real of the Spanish Las Californias and Mexican Alta California eras, now U.S. Route 101, also called the Ventura Freeway in that area south of Hidden Hills.

"Moreover, with its absence of sidewalks and streetlights, copious “Horses & children at play” signage, and abundant 2-acre lots surrounded by white three-rail fences, Hidden Hills exudes a certain rough-around-the-edges charm."[11]

The city was the setting of a short-lived NBC sitcom Hidden Hills, which aired in 2002–2003.
