 Mandeville Canyon is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts

Welcome to Mandeville Canyon and It's Ridges

You will find our website filled with information about our unique and treasured canyon and ridges.  Discover the canyon's ambitious beginnings in the 1920’s as a research botanical garden for UCLA to the formation of the Mandeville Canyon Association in 1939 whose mission remains to protect and preserve this rural area. Today, with the devoted hard work of its Board members and residents, Mandeville Canyon continues to be regarded as a tranquil country-like setting amongst multi-million dollar estates. There is something here for the sophisticated, the playful, the easy going, the creative, and the country-minded resident to enjoy and to learn.

Mandeville is the place where we enjoy life in a rural area though we are just moments from the City.  There are lots of opportunities to explore our ridges and canyons, horseback ride, test your cycling endurance, or spy on nature's wonders.  Try your hand at gardening, grow your own vegetables, relax and read a book, write a book or paint.  The only threats of interruption are the sounds of hawks flying overhead or the hooting of owls if you will remember to keep your cell phone off and hang a “do not disturb” sign on your door.

Our web pages are meant as guides to whatever may interest you in this area.  We have included useful links to recommended vendors, schools, government officials, and archived our Newsletters and other community information. There are suggestions how to be more community involved, to reading up about emergency preparedness, wildlife behavior, the history of our flora and fauna, as well as maps of places to hike.

We invite you to come and take a look.  Got questions or suggestions?  You can contact us at We’d love to hear your comments and suggestions to improve the website. Want to talk to a Board member?  You will find a list of our current members with their email addresses on the MCA At Work signpost.

In the mean time a hardy welcome to our canyon and ridge.  Relax and enjoy our website.
