Encino


Encino (Spanish for evergreen or holm oak) is a hilly district of the City of Los Angeles, California, United States. Specifically, it is located in the central portion of the southern San Fernando Valley and on the north slope of the Santa Monica Mountains. It derives its name from the Rancho Los Encinos (Ranch of the Evergreens), a parcel of land given to three Mission Indians by the Mexican government following its secularization of the California missions beginning in 1834. Rancho Encino was established in 1845.

The portion of the Los Angeles River that runs through the Encino area is one of only two unpaved areas necessitated by the high water table. The original aquifer that fed the City of Los Angeles is the one located below Encino.

As of the 2000 Census, the population of Encino was 40,946, with a population density of 3,864.9 per square mile. The racial makeup of the district was 89.90% White, 1.78% African American, 4.38% Asian, 0.19% Native American, and 4.13% belonged to other races. Hispanic or Latino residents, of any race, were 4.62% of the population.

18.25% of the population was under 18, and 20.08% was over 64. The district contained 18,159 housing units in a land area of 10.59 square miles (27.44 square kilometers). Water covers 0.13 square miles (0.33 square kilometers) of the district.
