Top 10 Reasons to Live in Covina

  • One Mile Square! Yes, it's tiny. Its first motto was "One Square Mile and All There" and it held the dubious distinction of being the smallest incorporated city in the country. Located in the San Gabriel Valley in California, it's still small today, but it has grown to about 7 square miles. The orange groves have been mostly replaced by homes; in 2010, there were about 16,500 residential units, about 60% of them owner occupied.
  • Find What You Want. Covina Parks and Recreation Department has taken on the job of helping citizens get healthier, and offers a wide variety of classes and exercise opportunities at 9 separate parks. You can find active or passive sports and recreational facilities throughout the city. Play horseshoes at Covina Park or paddleball at Kahler Russell Park, or visit the Sister City Xalapa and World War II Memorial Monuments at Jobe's Glen at Jalapa Park. You can also walk, run, swim or play softball, or enjoy xeriscape gardens at other locations.
  • Act Up! The Covina Center for the Performing Arts has a varied schedule of cultural programs each year, ranging from musical revues to murder mystery dinner theater. Another attraction is a "mega movie," a 30 screen theater built on the site of a former Sears store. That's entertainment!
