Welcome to La Canada
Incorporated since November 30, 1976 it has a small full-time staff and the public school system consistently ranks in the top five percent of California schools. Although the city is only twenty minutes from downtown Los Angeles, La Canada Flintridge maintains a small-town atmosphere with a sense of shared values.
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 on children and community is central to the city’s 20,000 + residents. 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 climate is perfect for the variety of beautiful camellias and the live-oak forest at Descanso Gardens, a 165-acre botanical garden known throughout the nation.
With the San Gabriel Mountains providing a dramatic backdrop, La Cañada Flintridge represents the very best of California living.
