Hillcrest is a tiny community nestled within Canyon Crest, notable for its multimillion-dollar estates amid the boulders and rolling hills.
Located atop one of the highest points in the City of Riverside, spectacular views combine with endless skies to preserve a bit of the Old West in the ever-burgeoning Inland Empire.
The neighborhood borders Orangecrest, Mission Grove and Alessandro Heights, among the most sought-after communities in Riverside for homeowners. The Mission Grove Plaza nearby offers shopping and entertainment.
The community of Canyon Crest has its roots in the citrus industry. In 1907, the Monte Vista Nursery was established in the area, which includes the Canyon Crest Town Center. This nursery, which specialized in citrus stock, ultimately covered an area of 200 acres. Canyon Crest is one of the largest and most diverse neighborhoods of Riverside. Its diversity is found both in its topography and in its diversity of 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 southern half of Canyon Crest, including Hillcrest, hosts larger lots and larger homes to accommodate upper-income families.
