Yorba Linda

Yorba Linda

Yorba Linda, known as the “Land of Gracious Living” is a city with a strong sense of community and small-town character. The “Yorba Linda” name originated from Jose Yorba, a member of a Spanish expedition. In 1907, portions of the former Yorba lands were sold to the Janss Corporation, who then subdivided the property and named the new town “Yorba Linda” (“Yorba” after the early land grant family and “Linda” meaning pretty in Spanish).Early residents came to Yorba Linda with the intent of operating small farms, constructing numerous ranch houses, and planting citrus groves. The construction of the Pacific Electric Railroad line between Yorba Linda and Los Angeles established an important transportation link providing growers a more efficient means to deliver their produce to major markets. Soon after, two packing houses were built adjacent to the railroad station and the center of the community was established.

Today, Yorba Linda comprised of 20 square miles, remains a suburban community characterized by mostly residential family neighborhoods, key commercial centers, parklands and open space, multi-use trails, and important historic resources. Recognized as one of the “100 Best Places to Live” in the United States, Yorba Linda continues to uphold its shared values of responsible growth, preservation of existing neighborhood character, and conservation of natural resources. 

Today’s residents enjoy: 

  • Black Gold Golf Club
  • Equestrian center
  • A multi-purpose Community Center
  • Multi-use recreational facilities
  • Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace
  • The Susanna Bixby Bryant Ranch Museum
  • Veteran’s memorial

Safe neighborhoods, high property values, award winning schools, investment in public infrastructure, strong leadership, visionary planning, public and private partnerships, an engaged community, and an exceptional quality of life all continue to lay the foundations for Yorba Linda’s success, which has and will continue to characterize our community for decades
