Brentwood is one of the most desirable places to live in all of Los Angeles.  It is close to the Santa Monica beach but does not get the chilly ocean breeze that comes with living near the beach.  Some of the most beautiful homes are located in the Santa Monica Mountains with a peaceful serenity feeling due to the seclusion from the city.

There are a few parks in Brentwood that provide useful amenities for residents.  One is called the Brentwood recreation center which includes tennis courts, a basketball court, softball field, and gymnasium.  There is also the Barrington dog park which is a fenced up park that allows dogs run around and play.

For the wealthier avid golfers Brentwood also has its own golf course called Brentwood Country Club.  It includes 18 hole par 72 golf course, tennis courts, and year round swimming pool.
