For those looking for a quality and safe area for seniors, there are a number of assisted-living facilities and bedroom communities located along Devonshire Street and Lassen Street. If you are seeking more of a suburban atmosphere, head north of Devonshire Street or towards Topanga Canyon Road where you can find large multi-family homes and luxury condominium complexes.

Near the surrounding areas of the Santa Susana Mountains are largely uninhabited, non-residential areas with large and open roaming space for farm animals. Murals and colorful pieces of art also decorate the Chatsworth Arts District located on Devonshire between Topanga Boulevard and Owensmouth Avenue.

Many out-of-towners and locals head towards Devonshire to experience a local saloon. It is considered normal to dress the part, drink generously, and line dance while enjoying the live musical performances. Many locals support the community by attending Friday night football scrimmages against rival teams.

There are many historical nature parks in Chatsworth that provide scenic and open trails for horseback riding, picnicking, sports, biking, and rock climbing.
