Tujunga is a Los Angeles neighborhood located in the San Fernando Vally in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. This neighborhood is comprised of commercial, residential, and natural areas. The residential areas are a combination of standalone, single-family homes and smaller apartment complexes. The commercial area includes chain restaurants, the Bolton Hall Museum, grocery stores, public schools, and gas stations. The natural areas of Tujunga include smaller parks like Fehlhaber-Houk Park, Howard Finn Park, and the much larger Haines Canyon and Deukmejian Wilderness Parks. Deukmejian Wilderness Park is home to Mt. Lukens which is the highest point of elevation in the city of Los Angeles. 

Tujunga is located in a mild climate area which means you typically should not be dealing with extreme cold or heat, depending on the seasons. The average temperature in Los Angeles ranges from 59° - 76°F, so it's always a perfect day for a walk!

Fun fact: Part of E.T., including Elliot's house, was filmed in Tujunga!

The neighborhood of Tujunga is pretty evenly split between artificial, constructed terrain and the more natural areas. A large part of the neighborhood includes Deukmejian Wilderness Park which includes both foothills and peaks of the San Gabriel Mountains. Because of this, Tujunga is a rather hilly neighborhood. The residential and commercial areas have moderate hills while the majority of the steeper inclines are in the more natural parts of the neighborhood. As previously mentioned,  Mt. Lukens, located in Tujunga, is the highest point of elevation in the city of Los Angeles. 


The boundaries of Tujunga are not especially linear, but it is bordered by a few other neighborhoods including Deukmejian Wilderness Park to the north, Crescenta Highlands to the east, La Tuna Canyon Park and the Verdugo Mountains to the south, and Sunland to the west. The area is especially great for people and pets with an affinity for the outdoors.

There are plenty of greenways and natural areas in Tujunga. Smaller parks, located in the more populated part of the neighborhood, include Fehlhaber-Houk Park, Howard Finn Park, McGroarty Park, Blanchard Canyon, Haines Canyon Park, and Rowley Canyon. These are all relatively small and may contain playgrounds or sports facilities without any areas that are specifically for dogs, so you'll want to keep your pup on a leash. 


The larger greenway in Tujunga is Deukmejian Wilderness Park which is a 700-acre park that is located in both the Tujunga and Glendale neighborhoods. It is a relatively undisturbed and natural environment but has plenty of hiking trails if you and your dog are looking for a bit more exercise. There are no dog-specific areas in this park either, so your pet will need to remain leashed at all times. If you do decide to take a hike, please be sure to always be prepared with the correct gear.
