Situated in the Southern California coastal region, the City of Yorba Linda is located 25 miles southeast of Los Angeles and 95 miles north of San Diego. It is bordered by the City of Anaheim to the south, Placentia to the west and Brea to the north, and by unincorporated portions of Orange County.
Yorba Linda is 8 miles from Angel Stadium (home of the Anaheim Angels), 10 miles from Disneyland, and 12 miles from Knott's Berry Farm. The San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains are a one-hour drive, providing countless opportunities for skiing, hiking, fishing and camping.
One of the reasons Yorba Linda is such an attractive place to live is due to its landscaping and extensive trail system. There are some 100 miles of equestrian, biking and walking trails in the City.
The love of horses and the City's commitment to equestrian activities helps set Yorba Linda apart from other communities. In addition to the well-maintained horse trails, the City has also built three state-of-the-art equestrian arenas. The nearby Chino Hills State Park also affords residents the opportunity to ride in unspoiled wilderness.
Yorba Linda is best known as a residential community of single-family homes on large lots. The population is over 68,000. There are currently about 20,700 housing units in Yorba Linda with prices ranging from the high $300,000 to over $1.5 million. Yorba Linda also has over 100 miles of equestrian trails throughout the community.
All public schools in the community are under the jurisdiction of the Placentia - Yorba Linda Unified School District (PLYUSD). Parents in the PLYUSD are rightfully proud of the seven elementary schools and three middle schools, and are eagerly anticipating the completion of a new high school. Nearly every year, Yorba Linda students place near the top of Orange County schools in standardized academic achievement tests.
The number of Yorba Linda children participating each year in organized youth sports is impressive; the City maintains 135 acres of sports fields and 30,000 square feet of gymnasium space for activities including Little League baseball, girl's softball, Pop Warner football, soccer and junior basketball.
