Welcome to Yorba Linda
Tranquil community perfect for families and anyone who enjoys luxury amenities
Initially, as a two-and-a-half square mile rural town, Yorba Linda had only 1,000-odd people. But, after being incorporated in 1967, it became a trendy neighborhood. The city adopted a general plan for municipal growth in 1972 after an 890% rise in population over the previous decade. The suburban city is currently part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area and has a thriving economy. Single-family homes on sizeable lots are dominant in Yorba Linda. It is also not far from Los Angeles and has several parks, zoos, and museums.
