Background Information

With the San Gabriel Mountains providing a dramatic backdrop, La Caņada Flintridge represents the very best of California living. Although La Caņada Flintridge is only twenty minutes from downtown Los Angeles, LCF maintains a small-town atmosphere with a sense of shared family values that touches every resident. Tree-lined streets and the rolling lawns of spacious estates and colorful flowers surrounding beautiful homes set a standard of gracious living in this "glen between the hills".

A low-key lifestyle centered around children and community is central to the city's 22,000 residents. The City's public school system consistently ranks in the top five percent of California schools. Houses of worship and a variety of service organizations are an integral part of the community. Volunteers contribute more than 250,000 hours to civic causes each year. The Foothill Boulevard business district offers a variety of shops, restaurants, and services close to home. Residents also have access to parks; a community center; YMCA; a multiplex movie theater; a library; golf, tennis and riding clubs, and scenic hiking and equestrian trails.
