Valencia is an affluent neighborhood of Santa Clarita located just northwest of Los Angeles in southern California. It was formerly an independent planned community separated into several villages, each with its own unique lifestyle. In 1987, Valencia combined with four other unincorporated communities in the Santa Clarita Valley to form the city of Santa Clarita.

Valencia was ranked as one of the top 100 places to live in America by CNN Money. The town has over 24 parks and 30 miles of trails to support its population of 181,557 residents. These trails, known locally as paseos, connect the entire community together and make it possible to travel throughout Valencia by bicycle without ever having to cross a street. The network of paseos is maintained through special landscaping taxes and connects to the Santa Clara River Trail, running east along the Santa Clara River to Canyon Country.
