I just moved to Sylmar about 2 years ago to a beautiful 5 bedroom,3 bathroom pool house in what they would call the "Rancho Cascades" area of Sylmar,& I must say I'm very happy with our family's purchase! I've been noticing a lot of changes around the city in the past 2 years I've lived here. A lot more upper scale shopping centers are getting built and developed for example the one on Hubbard & Glenoaks which says its going to have a steak house and sushi resturant. Also the reconstruction of San Fernando Rd by the Train station has been reciving a face lift and according to city council so will the rest of San Fernando Rd. Between the private and gated communities,new shopping centers,and big,reconstructed homes ready for new families. I can strongly recommend Sylmar as a place to live and have a family if your one for the suburban feel of loving. I live on a beautiful street off Bledsoe and below San Fernando,its a great,quite,very family oriented neighborhood and love it! Definitely a place to look into for a great investment for the future.

Just recently, I taught a couple courses at LA Mission College, and my wife's workplace was just a couple freeway exits from Hubbard.

Sylmar is not the best area of the SFV--the population and overall vibe seem to be a mix of Tujunga and Pacoima. Not as awful as either neighboring... just a bit milder.

My experience and observation.

Sylmar is slowly improving but there are still areas of it to be avoided. Fresh & Easy did open a store there which is good. Overall its still a better area than Pacoima but that's not really saying much.lol

I worked in the area during 2005. I cant say I was that impressed. Maybe living there is much different. But it seemed to be a rather bland are of the Valley. And to be fair, maybe I confused it with San Fernando next door. Glad to hear that positive development is happening though.

Okay, maybe a sushi joint will do some good business. But I do not see a steakhouse going over well in that part of the valley. Very few people around there would be willing to put out 15 to 21 dollars for a steak.

Sylmar and the surrounding area is largely low income hispanic. Those people are not going to pop out money for something that they can make themselves.

I hate those horse riders especially round the county hospital (olive view) i drive my wife there 2-3x a week and those morons crosses the road even when its pitch dark, they are idiots, they dont even attempt to wear any high vision clothing of the sort.

I see meals on wheel truck all the time by those apartment complexes by the industrial complexes every night.

I am not impressed by sylmar one bit, not a place you want to be at night.

It really isn't a bad area. You can walk up & down the street just fine. The area is under Gentrification slowly and many new young families are moving in and are picking up the city. I've never had a problem in the streets and hardly hear about crime in my area. The area of Sylmar I live in is definitely well maintained area and wouldn't classify it as a low income hispanic community,its still pretty diverse and you definitely see all different classes of people. It's a very quiet place in my opinion. Everyone here seems to mind there own. And my neighbors are very friendly.
