Situated in the eastern end of Crescenta Valley, La Canada Flintridge, CA is nestled between the San Gabriel Mountains and the Angeles National Forest. Bordered on the east and south by the cities of Pasadena and Glendale, the city is 13 miles northeast of the Los Angeles Civic Center.
While the city is only about 20 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, La Canada Flintridge with its tree-lined streets, elegant homes and rolling lawns of spacious estates and colorful flowers maintains its small-town atmosphere. A low-key lifestyle that centers on the children & community is central to the city’s residents.
La Canada Flintridge has been home to many celebrities over the years, including Vince Vaughn, Mark Geragos, Haley Joel Osment and his sister Emily Osment, Kevin Costner, and Miley Cyrus. The city is also a popular filing location, where movies such as “American Pie”, “Date Movie” & “Old School” have been shot.
Another source of pride for the community is the La Canada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association’s annual float entry in Pasadena’s New Year’s Day Parade, which is designed and constructed by volunteers with funding coming from the community and the city.
