Hawarden Hills comprises 10 square miles in Riverside’s southeast corner, bounded roughly by the city limits, Washington Street, the Gage Canal and Alessandro Boulevard. Much of the area is empty hillsides, protected from dense development by Prop. R, the 1979 growth-control initiative. The boundaries actually encompass three residential neighborhoods, from the million-dollar estates that grace Ravenswood and Hawarden Drive and its tributary street to homes that dot rural Golden Star Avenue, Bradley Street and Gopher Gulch.
Besides the calming backdrop of the hills, the three areas share the peace and quiet that attracted many of the residents.
Narrow tree-lined Hawarden Drive is divided into two parts as it snakes along and above the Gage Canal. The northern side has two entrances, Arlington Avenue and Horace Street. It is dominated by sprawling older homes at the end of driveways that seem to disappear into the hills. The southern end can be entered from Washington or Mary streets. It offers primarily newer, but similarly grand, custom-built homes.
Hawarden Hills households have higher incomes and a higher homeownership rate than the average Riverside home, according to the U.S. Census.
