Welcome to the City of Irwindale, also known as "Jardin de Roca," Spanish for "Garden of Rocks." Situated in the center of the San Gabriel Valley at the confluence of the 605 and 210 freeways, Irwindale is an exciting place to do business and our potential for growth rivals that of any of our neighboring cities. This is clearly demonstrated with such well-known companies as Southern California Edison, Ready Pac Produce, City of Hope, MillerCoors, Breeders Choice Pet Food, Superior Communications and Huey Fong Foods. The sand and gravel mining industry remains a significant part of the city's growth. A remarkable achievement for the city is that two of the reclaimed rock quarries will be converted into developable land in the next 10 to 15 years. Visit City Website
