Recently named one of the 50 best places to live in the United States by Fifty Fabulous Places to Raise Your Family, this popular community grew out of a master plan created legendary planner Victor Gruen in 1965 that would focus on every aspect of modern life—work, recreation, shopping, medical care as well as residential development. Located at the heart of the City of Santa Clarita, Valencia encompasses the Santa Clarita City Hall and civic center, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, Valencia Town Center, Valencia Marketplace, Valencia Country Club, Princess Cruises headquarters, and Six Flags Magic Mountain, which along with many medical facilities, industrial complexes, and film industry studios provide ample sources of employment to the community.
Valencia is also home to two distinguished educational institutions, the College of the Canyons and the Disney-endowed California Institute of the Arts. The future campus of the University of California at Los Angeles Film and Television Preservation Center will be located on 60-acres directly between these two campuses.
The community’s extensive scenic walkways and bike paths, locally known as the paseos, connect shopping centers, parks, and schools to all residential communities within Valencia including the Bridgeport community and lake. Valencia’s popular Bella Via Italian Street Painting Festival occurs annually on Town Center Drive, a shopping, entertainment, and dining scene designed to mimic Main Street America.
