Sunland is a neighborhood in the Valley section of the city of Los Angeles, California. Often mistakenly said to be part of the nearby San Fernando Valley, Sunland is actually part of the Crescenta Valley.
It is bordered by the Los Angeles districts of Shadow Hills and Lake View Terrace on the west, La Tuna Canyon on the south, and Tujunga on the east, and by the San Gabriel Mountains on the north. The Foothill Freeway links it with downtown Los Angeles (via the Glendale Freeway) and to the San Gabriel Valley far to the east.
Like most of the San Fernando Valley, Sunland’s development occurred largely in the 1950s and 1960s. Much of the district’s housing stock consists of modestly sized single-family detached homes.
