"Boring but Good for Raising Kids"

Planconi is a residential neighborhood whose main feature is the Planconi Park at its western edge, just across the street from Glendale Business College. The triangular park doesn’t have much to it, being mostly just a baseball field occasionally occupied by local kids.

The rest of the neighborhood is made up of a nice middle class neighborhood. The residential streets are leafy, the lawns well-kept, and the homes mostly of the modest ranch home variety. It is very pleasant if not more than a little bit boring.

Glen Oaks is a beautiful boulevard on its northern end, with palm trees, but both it and San Fernando Road have nothing particularly distinctive in terms of restaurant or stores. They are perfectly serviceable, but no one from outside of the area would drive in to go to them.

All in all, however, it is exactly the kind of boring place that is perfect for raising kids.
