River Village is located on the map in Saugus of Santa Clarita, just east of Bouquet Canyon Road, on both sides of Newhall Ranch Road. It is a beautiful, newer community, originally built from 2008 through 2016. As of 2021, the new Concord at River Village project is mostly finished, open and selling homes. We toured the models more than once and we think they’re terrific.
