Fontana Real Estate

A city in San Bernardino County, California, Fontana is home to the largest of the San Bernardino County system libraries, a renovated historic theater, a municipal park, and the Auto Club Speedway on the site of the Kaiser Steel Mill. Fontana also hosts the Fontana Days Half Marathon and 5K run. This race is the fastest half-marathon course in the world.

The United States Census Bureau estimated Fontana’s 2017 population at 211,815, making it the second-most populous city in San Bernardino County and the 19th largest in the state. The name Fontana is Italian for fountain or water source, being in close proximity to the Santa Ana River to the east.

The city also has numerous local shopping centers, such as the Summit Heights Gateway/Falcon Ridge Town Center at the north end of the city, and Palm Court in the southern section. The city also features commercial strip zoning along several of its major avenues and boulevards, such as the “Miracle Mile” Straddling the 210 Freeway between Citrus and Sierra Avenues. Fontana is home to the Fontana Unified School District but also has other districts that partly serve the area. The official Fontana Auto Center is part of that zone, with two major dealerships already in place.

One of the more prominent and well-known landmarks of the city is the Lewis Library and Technology Center, which opened in April 2008. At an estimated cost of over $6,000,000, this facility was made possible through a mixture of private and public funds. It is the largest library in the San Bernardino County Library System. The city includes various amenities for culture, sports and recreation that include: Center Stage Theater, Steelworkers’ Auditorium, Art Depot and Auto Club Speedway. Fontana is also home to the following community centers: Cypress Neighborhood Center, Don Day Center, Fontana Community Senior Center, the Jesse Turner Health & Fitness Community Center, Jack Bulik Teen Center, and others.
