Box Springs Neighborhood In Corona CA

The Neighborhood Of Box Springs

If you talk to a Corona, California resident, their first thought may be of the Box Springs Mountain Reserve Park and Box Springs Mountain. That is north of March Air Reserve Base. The name Box Springs refers to a spring that has long been forgotten as a water source. But the road that passed it became the 60 Freeway and the spring itself is what led to the unincorporated community of Box Springs popping up. It was a natural stop for the stagecoaches passing through the mountains.

The mountain spring today is inside of a protected wilderness area. The UCR Box Spring Reserve is managed by the University of California Natural Reserve System. That reserve is not open to the public. However, the Mountain Reserve is open to the public and has several miles of trails.

The modern neighborhood of Box Springs borders Ironwood Avenue in Riverside. Highway 60 or the Moreno Valley Freeway is its southern boundary. Pigeon Pass Road passes through the neighborhood. Box Springs Road runs parallel to Highway 215 for a stretch.

Homes in this neighborhood range in price from 360,000 dollars to 500,000 dollars. The housing stock is a mix of three bedroom and five bedroom homes. There are some apartment complexes and high rise apartments. Many houses were built between 1970 and 1999. In fact, about 90 percent of homes were. A smaller number of units were built since 2000.

You’re a long drive from anything but schools and nearby shopping. This area has an average walk score of zero, since the major highways separate residential areas from retail and shopping, though kids may be able to walk to elementary school. There is some public transit. That is why it was given a public transit score of 29. There is a bus route along Box Spring Road. That road passes under Highway 60 and intersects with Sycamore Canyon Boulevard. The area received a bike score of 26. This area is car-dependent. Residents are a ten minute drive to downtown Box Springs and a twenty minute drive to downtown Corona, California. You can reach Corona by going up Highway 60 / Highway 215 before turning southwest on Riverside Freeway.

Box Springs Elementary is located off Ironwood Avenue. However, it is Seneca Elementary that is in the Box Springs subdivision. The Elementary is part of the Moreno Valley Unified School District. Moreno Valley Mall is located south of Highway 60. It is bounded by Day Street and Pigeon Pass Road. The Canyon Crossings shopping center is at the intersection of Highway 215 and Highway 60.

Census data says that the Box Springs area is unique for having roughly two percent of residents speaking Korean at home. Roughly one in eight residents is a college student, too. That is unusual because this is not a college town. But it is a short distance from Platt College Riverside. And Riverside Community College is a twenty minute drive away. Ironically, Moreno Valley College is actually further than that.
