Rainbow Glen is situated on both sides of Rainbow Glen Drive, between Via Princessa and Soledad Canyon Road. There are 9 different subdivisions primarily developed during the late 1980's but with some recent newer additions as late as 2016. In our opinion, the neighborhoods here are some of the most overlooked in all of Santa Clarita. Residents enjoy calm and peaceful environment, filled with classic beauty.
The oldest homes are the American Beauty Classics, built around 1989. Two other popular subdivisions are the Pacific Grove and Monterey neighborhoods, both built around 1999. There are more but the most recent Trestles neighborhood was built around 2016. Then, if you're looking for an affordable condo, be sure to have a look in American Beauty Village.
The homeowner's associations serving the different neighborhoods has been a long time source of confusion. There are multiple HOA's and it's not always obvious which amenities go with each neighborhood. The best way to verify this information is to ask the local residents or check with an experienced realtor.

Amenities & Conveniences
Rainbow Glen Neighborhood Amenities
The Rainbow Glen community is a little different than some other planned communities throughout Santa Clarita. Instead one homeowner's association for all the neighborhoods, Rainbow Glen consists of numerous neighborhoods, and over time it evolved and grew. It is split up into several different HOA’s, but the common denominators are, the entire area is beautiful, well maintained, peaceful and serene.
Depending on which homeowners association, amenities might include pools, spas, playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts and more. Also, ALL residents enjoy easy access to the Santa Clarita trail systems at the north edge on the community.
Some realtors have a difficult time correctly identifying and which HOA is associated with a particular home. Be very careful and be sure to verify everything. Double check with the seller and then again early in the escrow process. The costs for one HOA could be dramatically different than another.
