Like other communities in the greater metropolitan Los Angeles area and farther east, the city of Eastvale proudly claims a long heritage that dates back to the region’s pre-19th century history under Mexican rule.
But when you study the history books, you’re in for a surprise: Official cityhood didn’t arrive until recently for Eastvale, which was incorporated in 2010. Until then, this community of about 54,000 in northwestern Riverside County was often treated as a part of the neighboring, much larger city of Corona—and that city’s U..S. Post Office had the task of handling the high volume of Eastvale’s mail.
Why did it take so long for cityhood? For many years, Eastvale had a small population and was a place characterized mostly by its rural landscape with plenty of dairy farms and agricultural development. Then came the housing explosion starting in the late 1990s, and the community swelled and grew … and even managed to thrive after the real estate market bubble burst in 2007-2009.
Eastvale’s boundaries include the Santa Ana River to the South; Hellman Avenue to the West; the I-15 Freeway to the East and Philadelphia Avenue to the North.
For those interested in living in a small city with big ambitions, Eastvale is also within easy reach of the Inland Empire and San Bernardino County, as well as the San Gabriel Mountain range. Or, if you happen to be a baseball lover but don’t want to drive to Dodger or Anaheim stadiums, you don’t have to—enjoy a game played by the Quakes, a premiere minor league team located just a short trip away in Rancho Cucamonga.
Eastvale families are assisted by the Corona Regional Medical Center, while two airports are nearby, Ontario International Airport and Riverside Municipal Airport. Students belong to the Corona-Norco Unified School District, which has 7 schools serving children from elementary through their high school years.
Parts of Eastvale are assisted by Jurupa Community Services District, which has about 50 recreation programs for families to choose from, including recreational programs for off-track, before school, after school and Fun Fridays at three elementary schools in the area.
With housing prices ranging from the mid-300s to the 500s (depending on where you choose to live), Eastvale is still a community that’s coming into its own with growing commercial areas and continuing plans for more shops and plazas along busy arteries like Archibald and Schleisman. Don’t worry, though, it has its own Starbucks! Eastvale Ca 92880 homes for sale.
