The city of Brentwood has over 65 parks — a significant amount of uninhabited protected green land for the area. Not only was Brentwood recently awarded for their commitment to providing safe accommodations for pedestrian and bicycle travel, but away from the roads, they offer many wonderful hiking and equestrian trails.

Situated at the base of the Santa Monica mountains, Brentwood borders other nearby neighborhoods like Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica. The area has a temperate climate influenced by marine breezes off the Pacific Ocean. Residents frequently wake to a marine layer that is quick to burn off in the moderate climate of Southern California.
