Name: Canoga Island Village
Type: Apartments
Street: 8838 Independence Avenue
City: Canoga Park
State: CA
Zip: 91304
country: USA
Phone:
Status: operational

Description:
A large development covering a whole block, this place is a late discovery. The size of it makes it unlikely that its decor was very intricate, but the two A-frame pool huts are still standing as spectacular examples of Tiki modernism. Whatever tropical landscaping there might have been has been obliterated by easy maintenance concrete and Mexican gardner Slash & Burn tree trimming.




A faint "Welcome" sign written with shells in concrete


These A-frame gables seem to have some colored glass inserts


The pool huts are quite large....


...and of impressively simple construction


There even are two gas torches still standing


But the rest of the place is far from being a tropical paradise...


...more like a de-forrested desert

One more nice shot - I just love my A-frames

These are the kind of places you wish you could buy and restore to their original condition. Not that the tenants or neighbors would likely care one way or the other.
