La Canada Flintridge

The communities of La Canada and Flintridge were joined in 1976. La Canada is approximately 15 miles Northeast of Los Angeles, in unincorporated Los Angeles County, Northwest of Pasadena, and East of La Crescenta. To the North, it is bordered by the Angeles National Forest. Appreciated for its rural atmosphere and homes on larger lots, residents often joke that it’s similar to the fictional Mayberry.


The 8 ½ mile town boasts a low crime rate and award-winning public schools, which is one reason Phyllis and her family moved here twenty years ago. The community offers a convenient commute to most areas of Los Angeles.

  • Angeles National Forest – This is where Phyllis used to take her daughters to the snow.
  • Farmer’s Market – Saturday from 9 AM to 1 PM at 1300 Foothill Blvd., across the street from Memorial Park. Phyllis’s favorite time to go is around 8 AM when everyone is just setting up; there are no crowds and easy parking. Hahamonga, aka Oakgrove Park, is located across the street from La Canada High. (You will often find Phyllis here walking her German Shepherd, Joey). It’s wonderful in the winter after the rain.
  • La Canada Trails – Hiking and horseback riding.
