Sun Valley Reviews
Rating 3.5 out of 5 36 reviews
I’ve lived in Sun Valley for 20 years and it’s a slightly below average place to live. Homelessness and drug use has significantly increased over the years. Sadly, the parks are filled with sketchy individuals. It’s best to avoid walking or using public transportation, especially at night. The “nicer” area is toward the mountains (bordering Shadow Hills and Burbank). Due to its close proximity to these communities, gentrification is on the rise. However, you still see the occasional vacant lot/building. Everything is within a 5-10 minute drive. There are many things to do and places to see outside of Sun Valley that are within a 15-30 minute drive. It’s mostly dry and sunny throughout the year, but when it rains, the streets flood a lot. Speaking of which, there are streets that need to be cleaned and fixed. The cost of living and housing is expensive for what Sun Valley has to offer. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend moving here to buy a home, especially to raise a family with young kids.
I grew up here, it has always felt like home and not necessarily because of the people, although they do help make it feel like home. The experiences are the ones that ground me and connect me to the feeling of home. I went to school in the area, I grew up going to the local McDonald’s and grocery store. I know the area I would say like the back of my hand, but I don’t really know the back of my hand, but you know what I mean. I like how everything is close by, Santa Clarita for Magic Mountain is only 20-30 minutes away, Downtown Burbank is 10-15 minutes away, Holly wood is 20-30 minutes away, and you’re never far from a freeway, so it’s convenient. It’s a good area to be in. The only thing I would like to see change is to be cleaner and more taken care of. We are a rare jewel, we just need the dust brushed off us.
Love it , great community , affordable close to many things in los angeles. The weather is normally nice and i feel like home
Sun Valley is a Hispanic dominated city. It is fairly safe, and there are many surrounding schools. Because its a city in Los Angeles, house prices are expensive.
I’ve always liked the community bond Sun Valley has within it. Everyone in the neighborhood has something in common and there’s a special connection because of it. Something I would is the appearance, while there are neighborhoods which are even worse in appearance, Sun Valley contains too much graffiti, trash, and empty lots.
I was born and raised in Sun Valley, and continue to live in this city. Although I live in a nice neighborhood and consider my area as "safe", I know there are numerous areas that need improvement in so many areas. One example would be ensuring safety for some residents, providing excellent medical care to every individual, and providing better education to students. Although there has been a huge improvement in these areas over the past couple of years, I know we can provide more.
I love the diversity of the neighborhood and near by stores, and restaurants available. They're also many diverse food options in the area.
I have grown up and lived in this city my whole life. I have witnessed improvements but still see so much potential for growth. The homelessness has become a problem because they attract sketchy people and leave heaps of trash.
Sun valley is a amazing welcoming community. Sunvalley is one of the best places to live if you love to go to amusement parks everything is so close and schools here are really focused on students futures. Sunvalley is a amazing place but does needs some work. In my opinion what makes Sunvalley not really appealing is the pollution that we have here. Sunvalley isn't the cleanest place but that can be fixed in my opinion being able to take a day were the community can go out and pick up a few piceas of trash can make a big difference or even being able to just have home owners set a trash can outside there house for it people walk by they can throw it in there then throwing it on out streets .
I love the community I live in because my neighbors are friendly and lookout for each other. When they see strange people or cars pass, we let each other know. I would like to see the homeless population in this city change. The city of Sun Valley is filled with middle class people but that does to mean that a community where there are homeless people on drugs is okay. They should be placed in shelters instead of wondering around where it is unsafe for many people.
Sun valley is a very interesting place. I’ve been raised here my whole life and have no complaints. Sometimes I do wonder what it’s like to live in like Beverly Hills or Hollywood or rich areas but I wouldn’t change where I live in all honesty. Sun Valley has everything poor wealthy and I feel completely safe where I live. Yeah there are local gangs and rivalries between certain areas but I’ve never been in contact with any. Sun Valley can be home to certain people filled with joy and love or it can be misery to others because of the large homeless population. I personally don’t mind it because it’s not affecting my life but others don’t prefer being around it in anyway. Sun Valley is a community mostly everyone knows each other and is kind to one another.
I have been living in Sun Valley about my whole life now up until 1 year ago. Sun Valley is a place that has many judgments. Like all places there are those neighborhoods that are good and others that are bad. The neighbors themselves in apartments for the most part do Get along with each other and are friendly. The people who work in stores get a long very well with the customers and create friendships with them even. There is also close places where you can go to the laundry, buy some food, and go for grocery shopping. The crime rate is not bad, I would not see bad stuff happen around the neighborhood with high ratings it was not good all the time, but after a while it did calm down and got better.
Sun valley is a poor city, with pockets of communities that are good. It is riddled with homelessness and poverty that make it feel u safe at night.
I like that Sun Valley is a very open place. It has many opportunities. There is also a range of diversity that others are able to connect with. The only change I would like to see is better provided financial opportunities as there is an increasing homeless rate in the area.
Very friendly city with a big Hispanic population. Located within the Los Angeles County and near many attractions. There is a lot to do and a lot to see. At times there may be something to stare at, but mostly a calm city. Personally I feel comfortable here, and really enjoy my location.
Sun Valley is a grate place to live!!! you are close to everything in Los Angles area but away from the traffic. The best School to take your kids is Finton Academy Elementary, Middle school i'm not sure and High School would be Poly. Its safe to go out at night. I take my kids and dog for walks in the sun valley park. In the summer they offer grate community entertainment. The only thing that is a downer when it rains some streets flood heavenly like Tujunga ( I would recommend not to buy a house on that street) and tuxford.
I love the accessibility to stores around everything is so close . There are schools for all types of children. Public , charters and religious. I’ve been here all my life and couldn’t picture me living somewhere else. There are a lot of job opportunities. Many new stores are being open , like Ross, Burlington and do on. Same as fast food restaurants if that is you preference.
