It is a small, but nice little town that is quiet and has middle-working-class residents. The only change I would make is in one particular area, which is the intersection between Maclay st. and Foothill going towards the 210 East on ramp. The city needs to put a sign that tells those folks turning left on to the ramp that us folks turning right on to the ramp have the right of way and they don't!
Review San Fernando
What I like about the city of San Fernando are the people because they are hard worker and have positive attitude every single day. Moreover, I also like the environment of San Fernando. The streets of San Fernando are well stable meaning no cracks or bumps like the city of Van Nuys. The trees and plants near the neighbor are fresh, meaning that their are not dry nor polluted. I like the mini local shop they have around the neighbor, they have good services and good products like naturally medications. The churches are beautiful. San Fernando has very good Hospital with good services. I feel that San Fernando has all the needs to maintain their people. The only change I would like to see in San Fernando is the increase of business because many stores are being close down. I feel that people should really support the city of San Fernando because its a city that is well made. Believe me once you visit the city of San Fernando you will feel the pride I feel about San Fernando.
San Fernando City is a great neighborhood overall. Everything is local; schools, markets, hospitals, restaurants, parks etc. Easy to get around and comfortable living area!
