Happy Face Hill in Simi Valley Looks Happy Again After the Recent Rainstorms

Happy Face Hill, the icon seen off the 118 freeway in Simi Valley, is looking quite happy and green after several months of above average rainfall.

The Happy Face has been there since 1998. Sonny Klamerus created it and other residents and community groups have kept this 150 foot wide icon well-groomed over the years.

Recently 60 to 70 townhomes were built adjacent to Happy Face Hill, but you can still see it. And on the other side of the hill is a heart - not quite as prominent as the Happy Face, but you can see it driving eastbound on the 118.

 And here's a comparison shot from March 2015, prior to the addition of the townhomes.
