If Canyon Lake had to be described in one word, that word would be unique. One of only five gated cities in California, Canyon Lake began as a master-planned community developed by Corona Land Company in 1968. The Lake originally was formed in 1927 after Railroad Canyon Dam was built. It covers 383 acres and has 14.9 miles of shoreline. The City of Canyon Lake was incorporated on December 1, 1990. The City has a population of 10,647 and geographically spans 4.6 square miles. Canyon Lake is located in Riverside County, which offers a growing job base, newly built designer homes and great schools.
Would it interest residents to know that, in the fifteen year period between 2000 and 2015, the population group for ages 21-34 in Canyon Lake is projected to increase by more than 1,800 people? Or that, in 2010, approximately 35% of the households earned between $50,000 and $100,000? These are just two of the statistics listed in the May 2013“Profile of Canyon Lake” provided to the City by the Southern California Association of Government’s (SCAG) Regional Council.
