Olinda is a neighborhood in Brea, California, located on Carbon Canyon Road east of the rest of the city.[1] The original village was founded in the 1890s and grew when petroleum was discovered at the adjacent Brea-Olinda Oil Field. In 1911, Olinda Village and the nearby town of Randolph were incorporated as the city of Brea.

The name was revived for a quiet neighborhood built in the hills near the site of the original village, beginning in 1964. The neighborhood has six streets, and holds about 120 homes (many horse properties), a condominium complex, and a small elementary school. It is near Carbon Canyon Regional Park and Chino Hills State Park, and surrounded by hills covered with chaparral and home to coyotes, owls, hawks and rattlesnakes.

A Southern California Edison electrical substation in the area is also named Olinda. Olinda gives its name to an elementary school as well as Brea-Olinda High School, which serves Brea and Olinda
