Corona Hills/Corona Ranch


On the Northeast side of the city sit two neighborhoods, Coronal Hills and Corona Ranch that are kind of a pair. They're both just 10 minutes from Riverside so favored by those who either commute for work or who want a short drive for the commercial offerings of that bigger city. Home types are similar although the Hills homes tend to be a bit bigger, and more expensive in part due to the lovely views. Median home prices for Corona Ranch are ~$650k and Hills around $725k.

The area is home to Cresta Verde Golf Course, one of the oldest courses in the country - and at one time, the golf playground for Hollywood celebs. It's home to shopping centers so excellent for families looking for convenience. The neighborhoods have wonderful parks, including Rock Vista Park, a wonderful spot with beautiful open green spaces and hiking trails.

Schools in the area include Corona Ranch Elementary and McKinley Elementary, which are both highly rated.

Sierra Del Oro


Sierra Del Oro is on the northwest side of the city, and is known for its beautiful homes and wonderful views of the city and mountains. The homes here are larger, generally 3-5 bedrooms and built in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Prices can be as low as the high 600k's and go up to the low million dollar range. It also has several condo communities most with nice pools, workout rooms and public spaces for bbq'ing and socializing. These condos tend to run in the $400-$500ks. It's a really lovely community for those who love the great outdoors, in part due to the presence of Fresno Canyon Trail. It's 4.5 miles of pretty serious trails with stunning views and very popular for birding, hiking and running. It's a prominent benefit to living in Sierra Del Oro.

Kiddos mostly attend Prado View Elementary, an excellent and much beloved local public school.

South Corona


South Corona contains several neighborhoods is the most recently developed area of the city. The homes were built in early 2,000’s and beyond, many on top of the hills and with great views of the Santa Anna Mountains. Some avoid this section of Corona because the commute can be rough if you work north of the city in Riverside or San Bernardino. It's more convenient if you're commuting to or simply want to hit up San Diego more often. The area has a lot of casual places to eat and many of the big box shopping spots. It also includes the Shops at Dos Lagos, an upscale entertainment and shopping playland. It has a beautiful theater, amphitheater, and even a splash pad and children's playground. All of that in addition to great restaurants, cafes, pubs and shopping.

The area also has several large parks including Santana Park, which has nearly 50 acres of baseball/softball fields, soccer fields, skate park, playgrounds and tons of open green space for you and the kiddos to play.

The schools in South Corona are absolutely top notch with Benjamin Franklin Elementary and Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary among the highest rated.

Eagle Glen


Eagle Glen is a newer neighborhood in Corona at the very southern tip of the city. Built on the hills right next to the mountain range to the west, homes here often have beautiful views, and larger lots than the rest of the city. Prices are higher than other neighborhoods with a median price of around $850k. It's home to Eagle Glen Golf Course, one of the most stunning and challenging tracks in Riverside County.

The neighborhood is also home to Eagle Glen Park, a 14-acre community center with soccer, baseball/soccer fields, lighted tennis courts, great children's playground and mountain views from every spot in the park.
