From the City of Santa Clarita
Picture this… you are about to say “I Do” to the love of your life. The doors open, and you make your way down the aisle, stepping lightly on fresh flower petals as stunning arrangements line the sides of the trellis. A gentle breeze softly lifts your veil as you gaze into the eyes of your betrothed, who is standing in front of a magnificent mural, which creates a stunning photo backdrop. After the ceremony, you enjoy cocktail hour at the outdoor bar before transitioning inside to the Grand Room for dinner, dancing and celebrating your nuptials.
This beautiful setting is now available to couples at the new Canyon Country Community Center. Not only is it a stunning venue to exchange vows, but it is also an affordable option for a variety of community and family events.
The Canyon Country Community Center offers indoor and outdoor locations for residents and organizations to hold events, weddings, galas, meetings, tournaments or even cooking classes! The indoor locations include the Grand Room, a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen and a foyer filled with natural light and paintings from local artists. To give you an idea of the rates offered, the Grand Room, which can comfortably seat more than 300 guests, is available for approximately $560 for a four-hour period on a weekday and approximately $704 for a four-hour period Friday-Sunday.
If you have not visited the new Community Center yet, there is so much to enjoy and explore. Guests can stroll along the meandering walking trails with picturesque views of the mountains that surround our Valley. Make sure you check out the sprawling lawn that fronts the outdoor stage. This will be the setting for the new Celebrate series, which will launch in April. Celebrate will showcase the diversity of our community through food, dance, activities, performances and more. There will soon be a new Farmers Market, which will be offering farm-fresh produce in the next few months.
This new Center is also the home to innovative public art pieces. As you explore the nine-acre site, you will discover the 27-foot-tall Commmunitree, gas pump bike rack, sidewalk poetry and a community-made tile wall, showcasing the natural beauty of the Santa Clarita Valley.
The Canyon Country Community Center has just kicked off programming that accommodates a wide variety of ages and interests. Children are learning to “bust a move” in Introduction to Hip Hop, residents are sharpening their cooking skills in the demonstration teaching kitchen and teens are putting safety first in Self Defense and Safety Awareness.
Parents seeking enriching educational, recreational and social opportunities for their children and teens will be pleased to know that the Canyon Country Community Center has programs for them as well. For toddlers, Primetime Preschool truly lays the foundation for successful education for our community’s youth through an age-appropriate and engaging curriculum. An Afterschool Program for children and a Teen Experience Program are also available for youth to enjoy while also making new friends and memories. Each program is designed to offer safe and fun activities that range from crafts to games, sports, food making and more.
Adults are included in the fun at the Canyon Country Community Center too. Health, fitness and fun are the focus of ongoing programs like Pickleball and Table Tennis. Lovers of DIY, arts and crafts are also trying the new Jewelry Making program to create one-of-a-kind beaded necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The Community Center has kicked-off programming for our senior friends with free activities including Bingo, POKENO and the Seniors Makers Club.
