Nestled amid thick trees and lush gardens, Brentwood Glen (known simply as "the Glen" by its residents) is home to about 560 dwellings consisting mostly of single family homes, with some duplexes, triplexes and multiple-unit apartments. Brentwood Glen is bounded by Sunset Boulevard to the north, Interstate 405 to the east, and the Veterans' Administration to the south and the west. Neighborhood pride defines this beautiful, little community as residents of all ages can be seen regularly strolling the streets, walking dogs, and greeting one another.
Students in Brentwood Glen attend schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
