Forming the western gateway to Riverside, California, the neighborhood of La Sierra stretches from the Arlington area to the city’s western edge. This large, complex community was the result of a 1964 annexation, and its name originated from the Rancho La Sierra de Sepulveda Mexican land grant. Today this neighborhood is like a city within the city. In the heart of the community, you’ll find the 140-acre La Sierra University. With more than 2,000 students, the University’s extensive grounds encompass an observatory, museums, an extensive library, an arboretum, and many other facilities.
Beyond La Sierra University, the neighborhood is also home to Kaiser Hospital, Riverwalk, the Galleria at Tyler, and Five-Points, a one-of-a-kind crossroads/intersection found at La Sierra and Hole Avenues. Also in La Sierra are retail developments, business parks, and a variety of smaller neighborhoods and subdivisions. La Sierra real estate is primarily comprised of medium-density, single-family residences. However, there are also La Sierra properties consisting of large homes on rural-style lots, as well as master-planned, gated communities, and high-density apartments along Magnolia Avenue and near the University.
The neighborhood grew dramatically in the late 1990s and throughout the 2000s. The development of the master-planned Riverwalk community alone created 500 new luxury apartments and over 1,000 new single-family homes. Riverwalk also brought medical offices, light industrial, and other offices to the neighborhood, in addition to “The Shops at Riverwalk.” Furthermore, Riverwalk Parkway provides easy access to the heart of La Sierra, as well as to many of the community's amenities and attractions. Adding to the allure, the entire area is served by the La Sierra Metrolink Station which is strategically located adjacent to the neighborhood. All of these benefits add to the appeal of La Sierra real estate.
