Starting in the 1960s, the Newhall Land company began to develop a new town on ranch property the Newhall family had owned since the mid-1800s.  That new town was called Valencia, after the oranges grown on the ranch.

The first neighborhood was, appropriately enough, called "Old Orchard".  In the decades that followed, other neighborhoods were built and development continues to the present as Valencia spreads out across thousands of acres of the Santa Clarita Valley. 

old orchard valencia The Old Orchard neighborhood with tree-lined streets is one of the original neighborhoods built by the Newhall Land Company.  

Valencia, now part of the city of Santa Clarita, includes districts for housing, recreation, shopping, and entertainment -- as well as light industrial and commercial centers.  The main center for shopping, entertainment and dining is at the Valencia Town Centre.

old orchard bike path A path for walking and cycling meanders through the Old Orchard neighborhood and connects with the over 20 miles of bike paths in the many communities that now make up the City of Santa Clarita.

One very spectacular and unique neighborhood in Valencia is Bridgeport.  It is built around several man-made canals and includes luxury homes as well as condos.  The Bridgeport community center is on our home page.
