What it’s like to live in Valencia

Valencia was originally planned in the late 1960’s by the architectural firm Victor Gruen Associates, and has been developed over the years by the Newhall Land and Farming company. 

Valencia Santa Clarita is a large, upscale master planned community, carefully integrating both affluent residential neighborhoods, and high end Santa Clarita commercial developments.

The name “Valencia” was chosen for the type of oranges that were grown in the area at the time.

Today, Valencia plays a major role in the Santa Clarita Valley. Valencia is the home to many of the best shopping centers in the area, including the Valencia Town Center, the Mall, and Town Center Drive. Within these shopping areas are located hundreds of retail stores, big and small, and some of the best restaurants in the area.

For entertainment, Valencia is home to the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center, the large Valencia Edwards Cinema, the Six Flags Magic Mountain Theme Park, and the Hurricane Harbour Water Park. Outdoors, Valencia residents enjoy a wide variety of local Valencia parks, as well as an extensive 35+ mile “Paseo” system. The Paseos are paved, lighted, hike and bike trails that employ multiple bridges and tunnels for the maximum safety of walkers and riders, who can be avoid traffic and crosswalks.
