Geography[edit] Victory Boulevard is approximately 25-miles (40 km) long, and is notable for several reasons. Victory Boulevard is the street where one will find the West Valley's major malls at Fallbrook Center and Westfield Topanga, through the Warner Center business district, along a section of the Metro Orange Line and by three of its stations, past Pierce College, through the Sepulveda Basin Recreation Center with Lake Balboa, Pedlow Skate Park and golf courses, then through the communities of Van Nuys, Valley Glen and North Hollywood in the center of the valley, crossing the Tujunga Wash, and continuing past Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery with its Portal of the Folded Wing, through Burbank's entertainment district, passing the Nickelodeon studios at Olive Avenue, then veering southeast to its eastern terminus at Griffith Park near the Los Angeles Zoo and Travel Town Museum (at the intersection of Riverside Drive & Sonora Avenue). Victory Boulevard is one of three Los Angeles boulevards included in the lyrics of Randy Newman's song I Love LA: "...“Century Boulevard (We Love It!), Victory Boulevard (We Love It), Santa Monica Boulevard (We Love It)..."


History[edit] Victory Boulevard in Van Nuys When Van Nuys was plotted in 1911, Victory Boulevard was called 7th Avenue.[1] Around 1916, the name was changed to Leesdale Avenue.[1] In the mid-1920s, the Leesdale Improvement Association unveiled plans to expand Leesdale Avenue as an 80-foot (24 m)-wide "great east-and-west boulevard" through the Valley.[1] At that time, the City also changed the name to Victory Boulevard, in honor of soldiers returning from World War I,[2] and paved the boulevard as far west as Balboa Boulevard where it ended.[1] Victory Boulevard did not extend to the West Valley until the 1950s.[1][3]


Transportation[edit] The Metro Local Lines 96 and 164 runs along Victory Boulevard.
