City of San Fernando
The City of San Fernando is a tiny enclave of Los Angeles, less than two and a half square miles, located in the San Fernando Valley. Only nine miles south of Santa Clarita and 19 miles north of Los Angeles, the city of San Fernando is in an ideal location to access many areas in Los Angeles County with four major freeways boxing the city in. San Fernando has almost 25,000 residents with a median household income of $55,000 and an estimated median house value of $290,000 both of which are average for the City of Los Angeles.
San Fernando has a typical amount of amenities in the city itself, but the main draw of the City is its ease of access to downtown Los Angeles to the south, Santa Clarita to the north, Pasadena to the east, and the San Fernando Valley to the west which opens up endless opportunities for amenities to fit any need and entertainment options to fit any taste. Also, San Fernando is a stone’s throw from the Angeles National Forest – a wonderful opportunity for dozens of outdoor activities.
San Fernando does have a few attractions within the city itself. It features a new regional aquatic center equipped with an Olympic size pool, three diving boards, a smaller recreation pool with a water slide and spray features, a splash pad, a patio area and large banquet room all of which is an excellent addition and affords an opportunity for families all over the area to come and enjoy a safe and fun way to beat the heat. Another local attraction is the San Fernando Mission Rey de España. The Mission’s existence, founded in 1797, helped found the city of San Fernando and is a pristine cultural and historical museum.
San Fernando’s location and recent development is making it a more population location for families to settle down while remaining close to everything.
