Knowing a little about the City of Poway's master plan, makes it easy to understand this city's motto -
The City in The Country.
Poway's master plan is to maintain nearly 70 percent of the city's 39.2 square miles as open space.
This commitment is evidenced by the City's 2850 acres of dedicated open space of which 141 acres
are developed parkland, including 5 fabulous neighborhood parks, spectacular nature preserves and
50 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails.
Single family residences comprise the majority of Poway's developed space, with commercial and light
industrial areas being located almost exclusively along Poway Road and just to the south in the 2,400 acre South Poway
Being apart of the Poway Unified School District, which is regarded as one of the best in the California school system, affords
every child the best educational opportunities.
The Poway Performing Arts Center brings well known professional entertainers to town while also giving local groups, with
members of all ages, the opportunity to perform in a top-notch facility.
Living in scenic Poway, just a few miles from I-15, combines the beauty and tranquility of country living with the benefits
of city life. Take the time and discover the City in the Country.
