Welcome to Reedley, California

Welcome to Reedley, California!

Sierra View Homes Retirement Community encompasses a 14-acre campus located in the San Joaquin Valley town of Reedley, near the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, approximately 30 miles from Fresno. The Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks are just a one-hour drive up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Yosemite National Park is approximately a two-hour drive north of Reedley.

Reedley is a small community surrounded by vineyards and orchards, bordered by the Kings River. The river offers plentiful opportunity for fishing, water skiing, swimming, and picnicking. We are considered the “Fruit Basket of the World,” and locally grown fruit is frequently featured on our dining menus.

Each February and March, the fields and farms around Reedley are transformed by the colors of Spring. Reedley is a stop on Fresno’s famous Blossom Trail, and Sierra View residents often enjoy traveling the trail and taking in the colorful and sweet-smelling flowers.
