With a population of over 59,000 people, Reseda is a district in the San Fernando Valley, located in Los Angeles County, California. Reseda was the true epicenter of what is known as the Northridge Earthquake of 1994. This diverse district was one of the first suburbs in the San Fernando Valley as its large ranches were divided and the area was developed by realtors at the same time World War II veterans were coming back to the United States. Originating as a farm town, Reseda was initially named Marian (or Rancho Marian) for the daughter of Los Angeles Times publisher Harrison Gray Otis.
Reseda is home to Reseda Park with its large duck pond, the Reseda Country Club (which can be seen in the movie Boogie Nights), and the Reseda Theater, which closed in 1988 after 40 years. Many movies were filmed and set in Reseda including Boogie Nights and The Karate Kid (the original version). The Reseda, CA Yellow Pages and the Reseda, CA Business Directory can show you where some of these great landmarks are.
