Tarzana is a district in the San Fernando Valley region of the city of Los Angeles, California, United States. The neighborhood is a residential community located on the site of a former ranch owned by author Edgar Rice Burroughs. It is named Tarzana after his storybook jungle character hero, Tarzan. The 2008 population was 37,778 based on L.A. Department of City Planning estimates.
In 1915 or 1919, author of the popular Tarzan novels Edgar Rice Burroughs purchased Otisís tract and established Tarzana Ranch. Burroughs subdivided and sold the land for residential development with neighboring small farms following suit. The subdivision was one of many all white planned communities started in the Los Angeles area around this time, with racial segregation enforced by a restrictive covenant inserted in property deeds. It stated in part that "said premises or any part thereof shall not be leased, sold, or conveyed to, or occupied by any person not of the Caucasian race." Burroughs marketed his new community using themes that evoked British imperialism and white supremacy.
Tarzana features a burgeoning Iranian-American population, and the community is well known for its Persian restaurants, booksellers, and language training institutes.
