Sylmar Reviews

All Categories
sylmar is a quiet suburban city on the outskirts of the northern end of the los angeles county. its peaceful,not a lot of noise polluti, gang voilence, and partying. great for raising a family. authentic latin foods and culture. also a very quick commute to downtown, hollywood, or the railways.
It's a great area to live in. There are a few unfortunate events that happen about once or twice a year just like any other community. I have lived there for 3 years now and its great. There are very nice areas and great stores and parks.
I would like more of a nightlife option. There are no clubs and bars here. I would also like more desert places as there are few options currently.

Sylmar is the city to go to if you'd like to stop for boba, teriyaki, and donuts, or to play tennis at the park. In my childhood, I enjoyed playing with all the kids from the small apartment I'm living in, and sitting on the curb while eating street tacos. For a little child, this Hispanic neighborhood was like living the dream.

Now that I'm older, I don't see myself living here for too long.
Sylmar doesn't have much to offer for bettering my education or finding a good job. Having gone to one of the middle schools here, I had to do extra studying to be able to catch up and get myself back in the right track since the schools here are underfunded and didn't prepare me well for high school.
a few fires every couple years. safe environment. not that far from amusement parks. has some good charter schools that really care about their students education and pushes them to go to college
I have lived in sylmar for almost ten years. I have met my closest friends here, the people in this neighborhood are hard working, humble people. I wish this community had more resources to build up the businesses and shared spaces.
I grew up in the city of Sylmar and so far I do not feel as if i have really been involved in my community. My neighborhood has changed a lot since I was little due to bigger families moving in to the houses around mine. As a whole I do not have anything against my neighborhood but I do wish i knew more people who were apart of it.
It’s full of local businesses competing with larger companies. Also, it’s really close to the mountains so the sight of them is amazing.
Sylmar is a nice quiet neighborhood. My one thing is that there isn't much action happening. If you want a mall or anything entertaining you would have to drive out more. If you are about the quiet, low profile, suburban life, Sylmar is great for you then. I personally need a scene to make the day going.
Sylmar is a very suburbs part of Los Angeles. It is very close to many parks and hiking trails. It is serviced by a local train station, so accessible to downtown. There is also great Mexican food although night life is non existent
I like that it’s a friendly neighborhood. There’s not much crime that happens. The parks within the neighborhood are nice. A downside to Sylmar is the traffic. It’s sometimes hard to commute with so many people trying to get by.
I lived in Sylmar since I was a little kid and overall it's a very good neighborhood, everything you need is near by which is very convenient. There's a lot of parks, gyms, public schools, and stores. Just by driving around Sylmar you can automatically tell it's mainly a hispanic community. Although there's a bad reputation and stereotypes about the valley, I like the diversity and overall culture of Sylmar. As of now my whole life is here in Sylmar. What I would like to see change is cleaner roads and parks, nicer neighbors, and little to less homeless on streets.
Sylmar is a great neighborhood. There is a variety of reason but the main one being it doesn't see a lot of crime. With a sheriffs office located in the middle of Sylmar, it is hard to see why anyone would dare to commit a crime here.
I like that its not in the center of the city. It is outside of the big city, but close enough to drive to all the cool places. I also like that its near hikes and beaches. What I would like to be seen changed is adding more parking lots, because it is very difficult to find parking after 12pm.
I have lived in Sylmar all my life. I grew up attending the local high schools football games went to the local schools. It has a very high Latino population so there are a lot of Mexican restaurants and Latinx owned businesses. I love my little community and the people in it but it is not the safest neighborhood. I feel that it defiantly can be safer as well as cleaner. Also the public schools are not the best, the schools can improve and need more money.
Sylmar is a lovely city with many parks in the area. Sylmar is also home to Los Angeles Mission College. Lived here all of my life and would not want to move any time soon.
Sylmar has its bad parts, but it also has its quiet parts. There are many ranches in Sylmar, and new schools on the area. Many of the residents are home owners, not renters. In addition, Sylmar offers many great restaurants to eat at.

There is really nothing to do there. You have to drive 20 minutes in order to go to your local target. There are only grocery stores there.
Majority of the families living here know each other from when they first moved here. Majority of the people are really friendly and are aware of there community. The streets do get full around 8am and 7pm due to the colleges and schools around the neighborhood.
Its very commute and also a very welcoming place. Its is a latino community so it is very comforting. The food is also amazing and the panaderias.
