This neighborhood park is a gem! It’s tucked away back in the center of the Sunrise, Discovery and Heritage neighborhoods and off the main thoroughfares. Heck, we lived in Santa Clarita for nearly 20 years before we happened upon it. You can see by the photos, it’s just lovely. There’s no baseball diamond or soccer fields, but there’s a playground, basketball court, a few benches and picnic tables. It’s a great park to kick back and read a book, or perhaps even a short nap.

Sunrise Description of Homes
Looking at the real estate listing information, almost all the homes in Sunrise are listed as single family homes. That may be true, however many homes are more like duplexes or townhomes. The thing is, many homes share a common wall with their neighbor. In our eyes, that makes them townhouses, but this is not what is shown on the titles. Most homes have courtyard areas and nice backyards, perfect for entertaining a small number of guests or family members.
