The Malibu Knolls neighborhood consists of sixty-five residential parcels situated on a crescent shaped area above and surrounding the Civic Center Area. These lots form the northern and part of the western boundaiy of the Civic Center area. The average elevation of the neighborhood is approximately 200 fee above the flat land below. The neighborhood is separated by a deep gulch into two distinct areas - East Knolls (40 parcels), and West Knolls (25 parcels). The largest lot is over 4 area and the smallest lot is less than 112 acre. The average lot size is 1.02 acres.

All of the homes front on dead-end streets, all of which can only be accessed from Malibu Canyon Road. During peak traffic hours, the residents are subjected to extreme traffic hazards by the high speed canyon traffic when entering or exiting the neighborhood. The East Knolls, in particular, has an intersection with Malibu Canyon Road at a blind curve on the canyon.

Most homes in Malibu Knolls have a unobstructed view of all of Santa Monica Bay from Palos Verdes to Santa Barbara Island. There is also an unobstructed view of the Malibu Civic Center. The physical terrain creates an amphitheater where the residents are the audience to the sights, sounds and any other activity that emanates now in the future from the Civic Center.
