With nearly 1,500 companies and 45,000 employees, it’s the largest- and fastest-growing center for business, technology and industry in Los Angeles County. So, whether it’s large corporations, cutting-edge technology companies, entertainment, aerospace and bio-medical companies or commercial space, Valencia has exactly what you’re looking for.
In Valencia, education is a top priority, and we have the National Blue Ribbons to prove it. From the very beginning, our community made a commitment to create an outstanding educational system in partnership with the local school districts, and we’re proud of our success in working to build some of the highest quality public schools in California.
Valencia also has an extensive system of paved pathways with grade separations over and under the streets and boulevards. The pathways are called paseos. These paseos connect the entire community together, making it possible to travel throughout nearly all of Valencia on foot or by bicycle without ever crossing a street. The paseo network is connected to the Santa Clara River Trail which runs east along the Santa Clara River to Canyon Country. Landowners in the Valencia area pay special taxes to maintain landscaping and the paseo system.
Recently, Valencia has emphasized its history as a planned community with the catchphrase, “Built as promised.” It has even gone as far as to unofficially brand itself as
“Awesometown”, using the tagline “Just Another Day in…Awesometown” on the website.
