Hollywood Hills
District: Beverly Hills

          The Hollywood Hills are a part of the Santa Monica Mountains and also a hillside neighborhood of the same name in the north central region of the City of Los Angeles. It has a rich history as the home of celebrities and members of the motion picture industry. The area known today as Hollywood Hills sprawls over territory south of Mullholland Drive, north of Sunset Boulevard and the cities of West Hollywood & Hollywood; east of Coldwater Canyon and west of Griffith park.
          The portion of the Hollywood Hills west of Laural Canyon Boulevard was definitely within the geographic boundaries of Crescent Bay Area Council and is known today as Hollywood Hills West. Prior to the development of this area in the 1950's and 1960's, Scouts from western Hollywood Hills could have worn the Coldwater community strip. The strip was also worn by Scouts in Los Angeles Area Council.

Los Angeles
District: Multiple Districts

       Crescent Bay Area Council was completely within Los Angeles County. Over 60% of the Council was within the Los Angeles city limits. Historically, scouting on the westside was under the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Council until 1922 when Crescent Bay split off as its own council. Many areas within Crescent Bay were part of the City of Los Angeles. Los Angeles community strips were worn by units within the Council as well as by Scouts in Los Angeles Area Council.

Marina
District: Marina

        Marina is not a neighborhood or district of Los Angeles. It is the name of a Crescent Bay Area Council district that resulted when Venice District changed its name to Marina in 1958. Smaller communities within Venice District like Mar Vista, Playa Del Rey, and Loyola Village discontinued use of their own community strips and adopted the Marina strip by the mid 1960's. Marina also referred to Marina Del Rey, the Los Angeles boat harbor built on county land which officially opened in 1965.

Ocean Park
District: Santa Monica

        Ocean Park is a district of the City of Santa Monica. It is bordered by Santa Monica to the north and east, the district of Venice to the south and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Ocean Park was founded by Abbot Kinney and Francis Ryan in 1895. The partners split their parcel and Ryan merged his northern section into Santa Monica around 1902. That part of Santa Monica is still known as Ocean Park today.
        Kinney was left with a tract of beach front land to the south that was subsequently developed in 1905 and also known as Ocean Park. To differentiate from the Ocean park neighborhood in Santa Monica, Kinney changed the name of his tract to the City of Venice in 1911. Venice was subsequently annexed by the City of Los Angeles in 1925 and still goes by Venice today.

    Overland Park
District: Westwood

           Overland Park is a neighborhood in Los Angeles along Overland Boulevard that was created in the early 1960's when construction of the Interstate 10 artificially divided the larger district of Palms. It is bound by Westwood Blvd. on the west; the Rancho Park district to the north; Interstate 10 to the south; and the Cheviot Hills district of Los Angeles to the east. It is thought this strip may have been used by one or two units that found themselves in Westwood District after construction of the Santa Monica freeway geographically split them off from Culver Palms District.
