Sun Village is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Los Angeles County, California, United States. It is in the eastern Antelope Valley at an elevation of 2,723 feet (830 m). The center of Sun Village may be considered to be Palmdale Boulevard and 87th Street East as noted at the Los Angeles County Assessors office. As of the 2010 census the population of Sun Village was 11,565,[3] up from 9,375 at the 2000 census.

Sun Village has been awarded federal, state, and county grants for the community based on this Avenue U boundary. There is a movement from the Sun Village Town Council to rebrand the area with the Sun Village name, which fell out of popularity in the early 1980s. New road signage erected around 2011 now labels Sun Village as a unique community.

In 2007, the Sun Village and Littlerock town councils formed a Community Standard District together, and it was approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.[4]

On September 3, 2014, officials from Sun Village and the city of Palmdale gathered at the Palmdale City Council Chamber to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in which Palmdale removed its sphere of influence from Sun Village.[5]

Sun Village residents, as in many other Antelope Valley communities, take part in local pageants and parades. The community operates its own local chamber of commerce and town council.

Jackie Robinson County Park is a focal point in Sun Village. The Sun Village Women's Club donated the land to the county to build a park for the community. Jackie Robinson came to the park in person to dedicate it to the community. The Friends of Jackie Robinson Park have kept the dream alive by raising funds throughout the year and supporting programs and projects in the park. There are after-school programs, sports programs, homework help, music, marching and cheer leading.[citation needed]

Composer and musician Frank Zappa played his music in Sun Village and made many friends there in the beginning of his career. He pays homage to Sun Village in the song "Village of the Sun" from the 1974 album Roxy and Elsewhere.[citation needed]
