The rolling landscape of Chino Hills once lent itself to use by dairies and for equestrian activities, but all of that has changed. Development since the 1970s has turned this quiet, rural city in the southwestern corner of San Bernardino County into a popular residential community embracing country life even while being nestled in the busy, metropolitan region of Southern California.
With a population of about 75,000, Chino Hills preserves its residential, village-like identity: That's why the city has been voted one of the best places to live by Money Magazine.
That doesn’t mean anyone living there will feel isolated, however: In fact, several freeways connect the community with the surrounding area, including the 71 Chino Valley Freeway, which gives motorists easy access to both the Pomona 60 and Riverside 91 freeways. For commuters who decide to make Chino Hills their home, Los Angeles is only 30 miles to the west, while Anaheim is 24 miles to the southwest and Riverside 25 miles to the east.
According to a 2007 survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, the city was ranked 6th in the U.S. with a median household income of about $100,000. In 2009, the median house/condo value was $490,000 – well above the state average at the time, which was about $384,000.
Chino Hills is an ideal place for raising family, but don’t just take the FBI’s word on this—the bureau ranked Chino Hills as 13th safest city in the U.S. in 2008—look at the city's schools as well. The city prides itself on supporting a top public school district, Chino Valley Unified School District, which is a leader in the county when it comes to results in the state’s API – Academic Performance Index.
When it comes to the great outdoors, the city encourages its citizens to embrace it. Take, for example, the 33-acre Big League Dreams Chino Hills Sports Park, a multi-use sports facility attracting tournaments and plenty of visitors year round. There's also the McCoy Equestrian & Recreation Center, where horsing enthusiasts can enjoy a 20-acre facility with two lighted arenas, covered bleachers, a gazebo, a community building and trail connections.
There’s no better brand in golf than the name of Greg Norman, and Chino Hills is the place where you’ll find Vellano Country Club, featuring an estate housing development and private golf courses designed by the Australian champion. The city might be far from the beach, but in the case of Norman's Vellano complex, this is one time when the presence of “The Shark” is most welcome! Chino Hills Ca 91709 homes for sale.
