Like its neighbor to the east, Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights is also an unincorporated community situated in and along the Puente Hills in the eastern part of Los Angeles County.
Rowland Heights is a popular destination for many in the San Gabriel Valley; in fact, it has been attracting many upper-middleclass Asian families since the 1980s (which is also true of its neighbor areas Walnut, Diamond Bar and Hacienda Heights).
Convenient shopping areas and good hillside homes (the estimated median house or condo value is about $461,000, as of 2009) have resulted in the population’s growth to just shy of 50,000 today.
Though it was once predominantly populated by anglo and Latino residents, Rowland Heights has evolved into a dynamic Chinese center of the county; Taiwanese families, in fact, comprise one of its largest groups today. That's good news not only for people interested in Chinese culture but also for any lovers of Asian cuisine, for the city has many restaurants and eateries catering to all sorts of tastes.
The adventurous diner can test his or her tastebuds at Supreme Dragon (which serves mainland-style Chinese dishes) on one day; on another day, Taiwanese-style dishes and other fare can be found in strip malls in the city; or head over to the Happy Harbor Seafood Restaurant or Coconut Bay Bar & Grill for a special treat.
Colima Road is one of the main street arteries, while the 57 Orange and 60 Pomona freeways provide easy access to surrounding areas in the valley and beyond.
With an estimated median household income of about $65,000, the community is also an educational haven. The area is served by an excellent school district, Rowland Unified School District, which boasts four National Blue Ribbon Schools and 16 California Distinguished Schools. The district – which also serves students in Walnut, La Puente and other surrounding areas – also has more Golden Bell awards than any other district in this region. Rowland Heights Ca 91748 homes for sale.
