Barangay Dalandanan, is one of the highly developed barangays in Valenzuela City, Philippines. The namesake of Brgy. Dalandanan came from the impressive line of dalandan trees that used to distinguish the area. The barangay celebrates four fiestas, all in all, depending on which area you lived. Residents near the border of Esteban celebrates the fiesta of San Roque every May, those in San Simon celebrate the feast of San Pedro in June, Belando residents observe the fiesta of the Sto. Nino in January and those who lived near A. Marcelo hold the feast of the Black Nazarene every January. An Iglesia ni Cristo chapel is also located along Km. 15, Mc Arthur Highway.

Brgy. Dalandanan is also home to Puregold's Valenzuela City branch, Valenzuela City Science High School, the Valenzuela City Astrodome and Victory Fireworks Factory. Banking institutions like the Bank of the Philippine Islands, the BPI Family Savings Bank, Banco de Oro, and Bank of Commerce are also established here.

As of writing, the Valenzuela City Dialysis Center is being constructed beside the Valenzuela City Astrodome.
