Lemon Park as it is affectionately known, lies between North Tapo Canyon Blvd and Alamo and Town Center Drive over toward Galena. There is new construction here as well
The largest community in the area is Woodranch. It is west of the city and has many different housing types. It is further from the amenities mentioned above and further from Chatsworth. The homes are relatively new built within the last twenty years. There are great trails for hiking and some homes with the most fantastic views.
Of course there is so many other lovely tracts here; Indian Hills and Big Sky. There are new custom homes being built by Simi Valley Hospital off of Sycamore and as mentions in another great post the Kadota Fig Ranch which has a flare of old town Simi life. The closest areas from Simi to Chatsworth are Kuehner and Yosemite. It closest to Chatsworth.
Simi is a beautiful family community surrounded by foothills and gorgeous sunsets. There are several famous hiking trails and a very friendly Parks and Rec. We have RV parking and decorate for the holidays. The Simi Valley Days, The 4th of July Celebration, and the street festival are some of the best celebrations in the area.
This is just a little information and a tad bit biased. I encourage you to explore. There is certainly more about Simi Valley and many more neighborhoods.

You are welcome to call me for specific areas. I can give you the famous tour of this awesome town!
But "good" area is really quite subjective. It depends on if you like tract houses or not, McMansions or not, homes with a lot of land like mine, or new homes, etc. I could certainly tell you some areas of Simi to avoid, if you want to email me privately, but I will not post it in an open forum, because I would not want to offend anyone who might live in or near those areas.
I think there are a lot of neighborhoods throughout Simi that would be great - depends on if you like older homes w/more of a lot or a newer home w/smaller lots. There is a whole new development up off of Erringer that have larger homes and were built w/in the last couple of years. There are older developments too that are really nice - Texas Track, Indian Hills, Hollow Hills (that is where we are - house is going on the market if you are interested; 3bd 2bath - nice sized lot w/RV).
You can't do wrong w/Simi - I think it is much better than anything you will find in the valley! Quieter area and still has some small town feel!
Good luck w/your move!
