Tarzana

A neighborhood founded in 1922 in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains between Encino and Woodland Hills in the San Fernando Valley. Originally known as Runneymede for the Runneymede Farms located in the area, the name was changed to Tarzana, a reference to early landowner Edgar Rice Burroughs' character Tarzan, in 1927.
