Burbank’s pools are often serviced by Living Water Pool Service. Due to the professionalism and quality that Living Water Pool Service brings, we keep coming back to help more. Here is why we love Burbank.
Surprisingly enough, a rich man named Dr. David Burbank purchased 40,000 acres of land north-east of Los Angeles and named the area after himself. The area became settled during the 1870’s as many pioneers wanted to live near a city, but still in a slightly rural area. Due to Los Angeles’s location of a mere twelve miles away, Burbank became the perfect place to live. Settlers had access to a major, booming city, but could retreat to a more rural area. This made for an upcoming city.
While Hollywood is known for its fame in cinema, the real production takes place twelve miles away. Known as the “Media Capital of the World,” Burbank is known for having many popular film studios within the city limits. One of the most famous studios, Walt Disney Studios, moved to Burbank in 1939, and has remained ever since. Other studios located in Burbank include Cartoon Network Studios, Nickelodeon Studios, Warner Bros. Studios, and The Burbank Studios. Much animation and film history took place here, and continues on to this day.
