Yucaipa is a mature, well-established community nestled in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains. Residents enjoy cleaner air and cooler temperatures as a result of the higher elevations, and a comprehensive approach to community safety has produced one of the lowest rates of crime for comparably sized cities anywhere in the State.
Yucaipa is known for an abundance of park and recreational facilities, drawing residents and visitors to recreate, attend community events or festivals, play active sports, or simply enjoy the outdoors together. The City of Yucaipa has 14 public parks, including an equestrian arena, a municipal pool, and other special use facilities. Yucaipa local parks range in size from 1 to 20 acres and offer a quiet retreat from everyday life — to enjoy nature, walk pets, picnic, or enjoy a stroll through the park.
