Valencia is a planned community located in the northwestern corner of the Santa Clarita Valley, adjacent to Interstate 5, in Los Angeles County. In 1987, it was one of the four communities (along with Saugus, Newhall, and Canyon Country) that merged to create the city of Santa Clarita. Although part of the city of Santa Clarita, Valencia is so unique unto itself that it is often mistaken for a completely separate city. Valencia is known for its well-landscaped boulevards and an extensive system of paved pathways with grade separations over and under the boulevards. These pathways are called paseos and connect the entire community together making it possible to travel around Valencia without having to cross the streets. Landowners in the Valencia area pay special taxes to maintain the lush landscaping and the paseo system. Valencias many residential areas are separated into unique villages. Each village maintains a community clubhouse with a pool and other amenities such as play areas, barbecues and a clubhouse meeting / party area. The Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park is located in Valencia. It is also home to the College of the Canyons, the California Institute of the Arts and Masters College. Valencia is just minutes north of Hollywood.

Valencia Weather & Climate

Southern California has a climate that is classified as Mediterranean. There are two distinct seasonal changes, categorized by the amount of rainfall received - a dry summer and wet winter with modest variation in temperature. In the dry season, a Pacific high-pressure system dominates the weather pattern creating warm and very dry air and a thick marine layer that typically advances inland during the night and burns off to hazy sunshine by midday. Surface pollutants trapped under the marine layer, or fog, create the Los Angeles area's infamous smog. In winter, the high system is no longer dominant and storms fed by subtropical moisture bring lots of rain into southern California during the months of November through March. Afternoon sea breezes of 10 to 15 mph are common. Strong offshore winds, known as Santa Ana winds are common, but rarely cause damage.
