Within the area of Los Angeles County, California is Canyon Country. The district is part of the town Santa Clarita, and populated by over 50,000 people. Along with Valencia, Newhall and Saugus, Canyon Country merged to become what is now Santa Clarita in 1987. It is home to the Placerita Canyon Nature Center, known as California's original gold discovery site at the historic Oak of the Golden Dream in 1842. This community gives a great view of the San Gabriel Mountains as it is located in the upper watershed of the Santa Clara River.
North of Los Angeles, the district is at the Sierra Pelona Mountain foothills, located between the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley. Once a ranching and farming community, Canyon Country has evolved greatly over the years, becoming a residential and cultural area for many to live. Its beautiful views is set as one of the many reasons as to why people move there. It has plenty of great places to dine, shop and find entertainment, all listed in the Canyon Country, CA Yellow Pages as well as the Canyon Country, CA Business Director.
