The Upper Nichols Canyon Neighborhood Association is a "non-dues" volunteer-based community effort that works to ensure crime prevention, disaster preparedness, and offers real-time communication issued by City Council, LAPD, LAFD, and other related agencies. On a community level, everything from babysitter networks to lost pet alerts serve the interests of the neighborhood on a wide spectrum.

Runyon Canyon is a popular park within a 1/2 mile of the residence that features various trailheads and off-leash walks with your dog.
