Welcome to The Canyons
The best place or nature seeking, tranquility loving people who still need to be close to civilization.
The canyons of Glendale are all located on the eastern edge of Glendale along the mountain ridge that separates us from La Canada and Pasadena. There are three separate canyon communities: Glenmore, Glenoaks, and Chevy Chase Canyon, all named for their main arterial road.
WHAT PEOPLE LOVE
People who live in the canyons LOVE the canyons. They love being surrounded by nature: trees, hills, deer and red tailed hawk are your constant companions, not an occasional treat. Living here it is hard to remember that downtown Glendale is just a moment away.
In the Chevy Chase canyon tends to attract a mix of mature families and very young retirees and career-minded executives. Chevy Chase Country Club and Golf Course has been around forever, lending ambiance and amenities to the ever eager population. Education and income tend to be on a higher end, but this does not mean that prices are high. Homes trend mostly on the contemporary side, but there are a number of architectural gems including a Lloyd Wright and a Gerard Colcord.
The Glenoaks Canyon has a very different demographic: with Glenoaks Elementary and the Glenoaks Park attracting lots of families with young kids. These families mingle happily with seniors and singles alike. This is a wide box canyon with lots of character homes on flat lots and at the far end, up into the hills, are the Scholl Canyon Golf, Tennis and lower Scholl Canyon Park. The driving range has some of the best views in town.
Glenmore Canyon and College Hills round out the collection of neighborhoods in the Canyons. These neighborhoods tend to bit a bit more mature than Glenoaks, but the density of tasteful character homes remains the same. A number of these homes enjoy lovely city and mountain views as well as a great deal of privacy.
If you love homes and neighborhoods designed with today’s lifestyle in mind, the Canyons should be your first stop. The only planned developments of any appreciable size are in the Chevy Chase Canyon.
However, some of the most interesting and significant homes in Glendale are also located in the Canyons!
