Welcome to American Canyon

The City of American Canyon was incorporated in 1992. It is located about 35 miles northeast of San Francisco at the southern end of Napa County. American Canyon was developed following World War II, with the McKnight Acres subdivision in the 1940s and Rancho Del Mar in the 1950s.

POPULATION The population as of January 1, 2016 was 20,374, with a projected population estimated at 23,700 by the year 2030. This residential growth in past years necessitated the construction of a High School, which opened in August, 2010 and is the home of the Wolves. The American Canyon High School has extensive athletic facilities, and a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center featuring a theater that seats 400 people. Through an innovative agreement between the City and the Napa Valley Unified School District, the community is able to schedule events at the Center 180 days a year.

LOCATION AND SURROUNDINGS A permanent green belt surrounds much of the City, including the Napa River and a 500-acre wetlands preserve to the west, the 640-acre Jack and Bernice Newell Wilderness Preserve to the east, and vineyard-covered foothills of the Sulphur Springs Mountains to the northeast. The Napa County Airport adjoins the City on the north, and the City of Vallejo is adjacent on the south. Major highWays include Highway 29, the world famous Napa Valley Wine Trail that runs north and south through the City, and Highway 12, which connects with 1-80 about three miles to the east and Sonoma County to the west. Currently the City is 6.25 square miles.
