About Simi Valley

Simi Valley, California- Located on the southern end of Ventura County and borders the San Fernando Valley to the north, totaling over 42 square miles of land. Simi Valley was originally inhabited by the Chumash Indians and was called Shimiji because of the threadlike clouds that are often seen in our skies. In the 19th century, Thomas Scott (Pennsylvania Railroad President, and land owner) began selling off parcels of land to citizens for farming and orchards. While there are still several farming areas in Simi Valley, today Simi Valley real estate is largely residential.

Simi Valley has over 124,000 residents, but is family oriented and listed as one of the safest cities in America. We have renowned school districts and parents often take their children out of private schools to have them be a part of Simi Valley School District. With over 20 parks and preserves, there are plenty of places to enjoy hiking, horseback riding, picnics with the family, and recreational sports. Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District ( makes it fun and easy to take part in community events. They host several classes, swimming programs, after-school clubs, senior activities, and sports teams for children and adults.
