Reynier Village is a district in the Crestview neighborhood on the Westside of Los Angeles, California.

Geography[edit]

According to the Mapping L.A. project of the Los Angeles Times, Reynier Village is in neighborhood of Mid-City.[1]

However, according to the Reynier Village neighborhood association, the village is in Zone 5 of the South Robertson area.[2][3]

Reynier Village is bordered on the north by Cadillac Avenue, on the east by Garth Avenue, on the south by Kramerwood Place and on the west by Robertson Boulevard.[2]

It is south of the La Cienega Heights district, north of the Helms and McManus districts and west of the Faircrest Heights district, surrounding Reynier Park.

History[edit]

According to locals, the subdivision was named after a family whose home stood on what it now the city-maintained Reynier Park.[2]

A well-preserved 1 1/2 -story adobe in the heart of this small West Los Angeles neighborhood speaks to its early days as part of the Rancho Rincon de los Bueyes (which means "corner of the oxen"). Built in 1865 by Antonio Jose Rocha II, the privately occupied residence at 2400 Shenandoah St. in 1963 became Los Angeles' 13th historic-cultural monument.[2]

Of the private park within the area,[4] a Los Angeles Times reporter wrote in 2006: "Locals, as well as apartment dwellers from nearby neighborhoods, gather there to play soccer and basketball, exercise their dogs and hold birthday parties."[2]

Rocha House, the 13th Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, is located in the village.[5]
