Neighborhood Info

About Canyon Crest/Sycamore Highlands Riverside, California:

Canyon Crest | Sycamore Highlands is one of the largest and most diverse neighborhoods of Riverside. Its diversity is found in its topography and residents.

The land under Canyon Crest was pieced together from six separate annexations, all of which occurred between 1959 and 1986. Most of the development in the neighborhood reflects modern subdivision design and nearly all the land is developed for low-density residential uses. The hilly terrain has shaped development and creates some beautiful views of the surrounding area.

The Canyon Crest Town Center is the economic focus for the area and caters to the large student population in the nearby apartments. Very little development occurred in this area prior to 1950 and most of the homes were built in the 1970s.
