Yucaipa is a mature, well-established community nestled in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains. Residents enjoy cleaner air and cooler temperatures as a result of the higher elevations, and a comprehensive approach to community safety has produced one of the lowest rates of crime for comparably sized cities anywhere in the State.
The City contains several City Parks, including an equestrian arena and a municipal pool, as well as a state park and a 200-acre regional park with lakes for swimming, boating, and fishing, plus campgrounds and playgrounds for the entire family. The Yucaipa-Calimesa School District has an outstanding reputation, and it ranks at or near the top in every category of educational achievement. In addition, Crafton Hills College offers day and evening programs of continuing education and training opportunities for personal and professional development.
Yucaipa’s community assets include its many schools, parks, faith-based organizations, civic groups, and other organizations that make a positive contribution to community life.
