Westfield Santa Anita, formerly Santa Anita Fashion Park, is an indoor shopping mall in Arcadia, California, owned by the Westfield Group. Its anchor stores are JCPenney, Macy's, Nordstrom and Forever 21. There is also an AMC Theatres multiplex and Dave & Buster's restaurant and entertainment venue.
The mall's original anchors were JCPenney, The Broadway, Buffum's and J. W. Robinson's. Westfield America, Inc., a precursor to Westfield Group, acquired the shopping center in 1998, and renamed it "Westfield Shoppingtown Santa Anita", dropping the "Shoppingtown" name in June 2005. The former Robinsons-May store closed in 2006.
This mall has been embroiled in a battle against Caruso Affiliated, a real estate development company which has proposed the building of a large outdoor entertainment, shopping, and dining complex in the parking lot of the adjacent Santa Anita Park racetrack. The proposed project, called the "Shops at Santa Anita", would be roughly the same size as the existing Westfield mall.

On May 7, 2009, Westfield completed the outdoor expansion of the shopping center known as "the Promenade". The expansion occurred on what was the former parking area between Macy's and Nordstrom. The expansion features desert-themed landscaping and introduced over 30 new retailers to the shopping center, including high-end brands Chico's, J. Jill, and Coach.
