Though recognized as Orange County’s smallest city, Villa Park is one of the friendliest and most welcoming places to live. Boasting the lowest crime rate in the county and four schools – all within walking distance from every neighborhood in the community, Villa Park is located at the center of Orange County. Encompassing an area of 2.1 square miles, it has a population of 6,500 residents and approximately 1,900 homes. With the exception of one shopping center, the city is zoned for single-family residences, most of which are on half acre lots. Incorporated in 1962, its history dates back to around 1860.
