Westfield Topanga, formerly known as Topanga Plaza, is a 1.6 million square-foot two-level indoor shopping center located in Canoga Park, California, owned by the Westfield Corporation.

History[edit]

Opened February 10, 1964, Topanga Plaza was California's first enclosed shopping mall.[2] A noteworthy feature was the "Rain Fountain" on the south end. It consisted of several circular arrays of vertical monofilament line stretching from the ceiling to a raised landscaped area on the floor. The effect of rain was created by droplets of recirculated glycerine slowly descending along the wetted lines.[3]

In 1992 May Centers, Inc., the original developer, was renamed CenterMark Properties and was sold by parent company May Department Stores in 1993 to a consortium led by Westfield Holdings, Ltd., a predecessor of Westfield Group.[citation needed]

The NBC comedy Parks and Recreation filmed scenes at Westfield Topanga during an episode of the fourth season entitled "Pawnee Rangers."[4]

In early 2015, Sears announced they would shutter their Topanga branch later in the year.[5]

In September 2015, Westfield launched a major expansion of Westfield Topanga, called The Village at Westfield Topanga. The new open-air shopping destination is located along Topanga Canyon Boulevard, between Westfield Topanga and the Westfield Promenade.[6][7]
