Known to many as, “the best-kept secret in the Inland Empire,” Chino Hills is a gem of San Bernardino County. Though it is within reach of major cities like Los Angeles and Riverside, the well preserved Chino Hills Park along with residents’ commitment to protecting their open space, render the town more breathable than much of the surrounding suburban sprawl.
Like neighboring communities, Chino Hills was once used as grazing land for Spanish Mission livestock, and then given as ranch land under Mexican sovereignty before the U.S. acquired California. In the 20th century it has been a hotspot for horse-riders and dairy farmers, though recent development has changed that somewhat. The city now includes several upscale country clubs and golf courses, and not surprisingly it ranked as the city with the 6th highest median income in the U.S. in 2007. Chino Hills is simply an attractive place to live – the 34th best according to Money Magazine, and the 17th safest according to the FBI.
The city has also been recognized as an excellent community for youth, a value that is apparent in Chino Hills history. In 1907 a local judge and group of citizens established the Boy’s Republic and soon after acquired 200 acres of farmland for its center in Chino Hills. To this day the organization provides vocational training and counseling for trouble-prone teenage boys, and has a strong legacy of successful rehabilitation and growth. Each holiday season the Boy’s Republic hand-make their famous Della Robbia wreaths and sells them to buyers all across the country.
Chino Hills has also had its share of entrepreneurs and wild ideas. One of the most flavorful was the Ski Villa of Carbon Canyon. In the summer of 1966 an anonymous owner inaugurated his short-lived artificial ski slope project on the outskirts of the city. The slope was blanketed with cement and then covered with plastic bristles to simulate the characteristics of snow. Skiers who cruised down the quarter mile run discovered that the bristles were not as forgiving as real snow, and unfortunately the enterprise ended in about one year. The cement remnants can still be seen today off of Carbon Canyon Road. Other projects like the 20-acre McCoy Equestrian Center, Chaparral Bowling Center, and dozens of shopping favorites have been more successful and are enjoyed today by residents and visitors.
Chino Hills may be a well-kept secret to many, but unfortunately it can’t hide from the smog belt’s poor air quality.
