Situated in an area where hills and trees abound in country setting, Diamond Bar is a great place to live. The City Diamond Bar has been recognized for its love of nature and the maintenance of trees since receiving its first honors to be recognized as Tree City USA in 2001 and has since maintained its name every year.
The city boasts nine public elementary schools, three high schools and two public high schools, including several that have won the Blue Ribbon Award in California for academic excellence. Diamond Bar schools have a great reputation for academic excellence from pre-school to high school, and this factor is one of the main reasons many home buyers and families want to move to Diamond Bar. The California Polytechnic College-Pomona, Fullerton State College, and Mount San Antonio Municipal College are several of the medium-sized colleges and institutions offered in surrounding cities, just a few miles away. The Diamond Bar is conveniently located where the Orange (57) and Pomona (60) intersect, allowing easy access to the San Gabriel, Orange and Los Angeles counties.
In addition, the city has over ten recreational parks, including one with a skateboard park, with various trails and recreational facilities, and is home to the Diamond Bar Golf Course in Los Angeles County. It also has a newly-opened community center for rent, located atop Summitridge Park and overlooking the San Gabriel Mountains.
Although predominantly a residential community, Diamond Bar is actively revamping local dining, hotels and shopping access within the city. Although shopping, fine dining, and entertainment are all within a few miles of surrounding cities, no matter which direction you travel.
Many cities in sunny Southern California are great places to live; However, the Diamond Bar offers the best of both worlds, a small town with great city amenities nearby.
