Moreno Valley is a rapidly growing young city since its development in the 1980s and is now the second-largest city in Riverside County. Its surrounding countryside offers stunning lakes and mountains perfect for hiking and biking. Residents also get to experience gorgeous green space closer to town in one of the many parks and trails filled with a range of amazing wildlife and wildflowers.
The city is closely tied to Riverside, California, the county seat and largest city in the county, which borders Moreno Valley directly to the west. Moreno Valley is also part of the Greater Los Angeles area.
