Canyon Crest, Riverside
Canyon Crest is one of the largest and most diverse neighborhoods of Riverside. Its diversity is found both in its topography and in its residents. Canyon Crest was formed by six separate land annexations, all of which occurred between 1959 and 1986. Most of the development in the neighborhood reflects modern subdivision design. The land is developed for medium-density residential uses, with some high- and low-density areas included to serve a variety of residential needs. The hilly terrain has shaped development and creates some beautiful views of the surrounding area. The Canyon Crest Town Centre is the economic focus for the area and offers a variety of dining options and convenient, quality shopping for the neighborhood, including the large student population in the nearby apartments.
