Rolling Hills is a city on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, in Los Angeles County, California. It is a gated community with private roads and three entry gates. Homes are single-story 19th century California ranch or Spanish haciendas.
Incorporated January 24, 1957, the city maintains a rural and equestrian character, with no traffic lights, multi-acre lots with ample space between homes, and wide equestrian paths along streets and property lines. To retain the community’s equestrian roots, homeowners are required to maintain horse property on their lots, or at minimum keep land where stalls could be built.
Residents work, shop, attend school, and obtain other services in the other towns on the Palos Verdes Peninsula as the only commercially zoned land within the city is occupied by the Rolling Hills City Hall, Rolling Hills Community Association, and LA County Fire Department Station 56. The city borders Rolling Hills Estates to the north and Rancho Palos Verdes on all other sides (including the empty Portuguese Bend landslide area to the south).
