As a new neighborhood in the City of Riverside, it sure didn’t take long for Orangecrest to become one of the city’s most desirable. This neighborhood is named after the orange groves that once dominated this region of Riverside long before the residents settled into this suburban savanna. Orangecrest is the dream community of the county, boasting modern homes, great shopping, top rated school, and no shortage of recreational features such as parks, a library and a community center.
This well established neighborhood is home to mostly young families who are drawn to all the amenities this budding community has to offer. With the majority of residents young, educated, and family -oriented, coupled with the fact that the area prominently consists of home owners, this community has a clear sense of pride in the neighborhood they call home.
Most of the properties in the Orangecrest Neighborhood are large homes with pleasant landscaping and thick green grass. As most of the homes were built after the 1980s, they offer all the modern amenities one would expect with newer construction homes. Additionally, buyers also value the homes in this neighborhood over more historic areas of the city because little updates, upgrades, or renovations are needed.
Additionally, this neighborhood is home to top rated schools, with multiple accolades and awards, as well as high test scores and graduation rates. Franklin and John F. Kennedy Elementary Schools that serves students grades K-6 has been honored as a California Distinguished School. Amelia Earhart and Frank Miller Middle schools are known for their technology rich academics. Additionally, Martin Luther King High School has numerous awards and championships for their academic and athletic achievements. And lastly, there are also fine private schools including Woodcrest Christian Middle and High School.
Adding to the convenience this community affords its residents is the ample neighborhood shopping centers and restaurants located on and along Trautwein Road and Van Buren Boulevard. This commercial hub of the neighborhood allows residents to enjoy casual shopping and dining within the area. From local grocery stores to department stores to coffee shops on almost every corner, residents don’t have to go far to take care of their shopping or their caffeine fix.
And lastly, this neighborhood has not one great park for residents, but three. Orange Terrance Community Park is the biggest and newest addition to the neighborhood, offering 30 acres of recreational space for residents young and old to enjoy. Located in the park is a community center where special events and meetings for Orangecrest residents are held, including camps, parenting classes, and concerts. This park also has a baseball and softball field, a basketball court, playground, picnic area, and library. In addition to this and the other two parks in the area that are available for residents to strengthen the community, Grove Community Church has been growing along with Orangecrest since 2002.
And while the way this community so quickly burst with growth and pride may seem like a dream, the real dream is what its residents get to experience everyday living in Orangecrest.
