Valencia Reviews

2
I have lived in Valencia on/off for about 3-4 years and have had a mix of positive and negative experiences in general. Valencia has a wide variety of activities and outdoor activities including a number of restaurants and social activities one can enjoy without straying too far from home. There are a number of parks and recreational activities such as the Valencia Mall and Six Flags Magic Mountain. The city is built to attract a healthy lifestyle by creating walk/bike trails for its residents. Valencia is a beautiful city to look at and its visually built to look luxurious.

We moved to the Valencia community in Pleasanton about 4 years ago from San Francisco. It's a very safe community and very family oriented. It's also very centrally located to BART, shops, malls, schools and hospital. Overall it's a great community.
