Malibu Creek State Park 1925 Las Virgenes Road • Calabasas, CA 91302 • (818) 880-0367 Malibu Creek State Park preserves for public use almost 8,000 acres of rugged, mainly virgin land in the middle of the Santa Monica Mountains—within the largest metropolitan area on the West Coast. Ancient Forces Made for Filming Paradise Rapid, dramatic geologic changes created the spectacular landscape of Malibu Creek State Park. Its jagged mountains, rock outcroppings, cliff-like slopes, and deep gorges were formed over two million years by severe climate changes, earthquakes, erosion, and tectonic plate collisions. These forces continue to shape the landscape today. In the early days of the film industry, rugged terrain that could double for far-off locations was difficult to find near Hollywood. Filmmakers transformed this area into exotic locales such as old Mexico, outer space, and an army hospital in Korea. Movies and television shows filmed here include M*A*S*H, The Planet of the Apes, Pleasantville, and How Green Was My Valley. The Angeles District Headquarters building here served as the “dream house” in the 1948 classic, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. Native People This land was home to the Chumash people for thousands of years. Grasslands, chaparral (droughtresistant, fire-adapted shrubs), oak woodlands, and riparian woodlands (stream areas) provided abundant resources. Early Spanish explorers found a Chumash culture of settled villages, established class structures, and extensive trade systems. The Chumash were known for their extraordinary craftsmanship, oral traditions, music, and rich religious life. Archaeologists have uncovered the site of a small village once known as Talepop in the northeast section of the park. European immigration and exploration changed the lives of the Chumash people forever. Their descendants still carry on many of their traditions today. The Sepulveda Adobe, at the corner of Las Virgenes and Mulholland, housed a homesteading family in the 1860s. The Park Today Malibu Creek slopes from west to east through the middle of the park. The creek was dammed in the early 1900s to form the seven-acre Century Lake. Numerous small seasonal creeks empty into Malibu Creek from the highlands.
