Conveniently located in the center of San Diego County, Poway is the “City in the Country.” Poway is carefully committed to the preservation of its land, with over 4,700 acres of open space, 82 miles of trails, 25 parks. A family-oriented community, Poway offers a wide variety of housing, shopping and recreation opportunities.
Whether you’re looking to kick start your morning with a hike, walk the dog, unwind after a stressful day, or simply enjoy the great outdoors by immersing yourself in nature, Poway's Blue Sky Ecological Reserve has something for everyone. As you stand at the trailhead you can’t help but feel you are about to enter a special place. Blue Sky is a 700-acre canyon rich in animals and plants. With Mount Woodson as its backdrop, an easy trail winds its way between coastal sage scrub, oak woodland, and mixed chaparral hillsides.
You can find an activity for everyone at the Lake Poway Recreation Area! Nestled in the hills of Poway amid groves of Eucalyptus and characteristic Southern California chaparral, Lake Poway offers annual community events, fishing and boating, an extensive trail system, picnicking, softball, summer day camps, and more. The lake serves as the water supply for Poway residents and has provided excellent outdoor recreation opportunities for the entire community since 1972
Poway is also home to Maderas Golf Club, a Johnny Miller masterpiece. The top rated Golf Course in San Diego County seven consecutive years by Zagat Survey, Maderas Golf Club offers beauty and challenge as it winds through the cliffs, rock outcroppings, creeks and forests of the inland hill country of north San Diego. Golf in San Diego has never been better. Step onto the first tee and enjoy the course's three lakes, five waterfalls, and over forty acres of native wildflowers. Maderas Golf Club is the number one golf course in San Diego for a reason. Experience it for yourself.
