Golden Valley, Los Angeles County        Golden Valley is a 2,345 acre master-planned community surrounded by the Los Padres and Angeles National Forests. The site is bisected by the Golden State Freeway and is located 60 miles north of downtown Los Angeles and just north of Valencia.

Neighborhoods are defined by topography, circulation, and open space. Separate pedestrian walkways, uninterrupted by vehicular traffic, will lead from residential neighborhoods to schools, village centers and community recreation areas. The plan allows minimum grading while providing contiguous open space links and a variety of housing types. Streets will climb the hills in gentle, roundabout ways defining the groupings of land uses.

The recreation and open space system allows for a major portion of the existing topography to remain in its natural state. Miles of equestrian trails will meander through natural areas across streams, ponds, and along scenic country paths. The recreation and open space system has been organized to allow a major portion of existing topography to remain in its natural state. Native shrubs, oaks, willows and cottonwoods exist in clusters throughout the canyons and valleys and new landscape will be compatible with these existing plant communities.
