La Tuna Canyon Homes For Sale
La Tuna Canyon area is an equestrian neighborhood with a rural feel, whose 450 homes are spread throughout the area bordered on the north by Shadow Hills, with Burbank on the south.
The name has nothing to do with the fish, it actually come from the Spanish feminine noun - tuna, which is a cactus better known as the prickly pear. As you drive along the canyon you can still see large communities of them on the less disturbed hillsides. As an aside nopal is the masculine noun and you might well have eaten the Grilled Nopales or Nopales Salad.
