Vista Canyon, Santa Clarita’s most walkable community, will be the best place to live for hikers and bikers in LA.
Vista Canyon, a new mixed-use development coming to the Santa Clarita Valley in 2020, was designed so that residents could spend as little time in their cars as possible. In fact, the community is being described as Santa Clarita’s most connected place to live.
“It’s a very walkable community where people can get around without getting in their cars,” explained Glenn Adamick, a partner of Vista Canyon.
In addition to nearly 11 acres of park space, the community includes 4 miles of pedestrian and bike paths, as well as equestrian trails, making it the ideal place to live if you love bringing the outdoors into your everyday life. Plus, no matter where you are in Vista Canyon, you’re never more than a 10-minute walk to the Town Square.
“We’re currently building the first component of the parks, the wildlife intercrossing that runs underneath one of the main roads,” Glenn said. “We’re hoping to wrap up construction on the park during the first quarter of 2020.”
Residents will be able to relax under the oaks in the sprawling Vista Canyon Park, or enjoy an outdoor concert on the Town Green along the river. The park also borders the adjacent neighborhood, so both Vista Canyon residents and their neighbors will benefit from the recreational space. While the developers will maintain certain maintenance responsibilities for a period of time, the park will eventually be turned over to the City of Santa Clarita, where it will become part of the city’s existing parks system.
“We’ve got a ton of walking and hiking trails throughout the project,” Glenn added. “The project site is roughly one mile in length, so we’re putting in about a mile of river trail on each side, and we’re actually extending the trail all the way over to Sand Canyon.”
In addition to the community’s own hiking, biking and walking trails throughout and around the project site, the trails connect to nearly 100 miles of adjacent hiking and equestrian trails and paseos. In fact, residents can learn more about the local surroundings and history at the River Education Center.
“We have trails that run from the back, or south side, of the community to the north side, providing access to the river trails and Town Square,” Glenn added.
Vista Canyon, a 185-acre mixed-use community located off the 14, includes 1,100 homes — with townhomes, single-family residences and luxury apartments — as well as close to 1 million square feet of commercial space and more than 21 acres of preserved recreational area. The community will even have its own transit center, Metrolink commuter rail stop and bridge.
