Empire Neighborhood In Corona CA

The Neighborhood Of Empire

Corona, California is often considered the gateway to the Inland Empire. The Empire name gets used for everything from gyms to demolition companies in Corona. However, Empire is also the name of an older neighborhood in Corona. For example, you can find small three and four bedroom homes built more than fifty years ago. They cost much less than the average home in Corona because very few have anywhere near 2000 square feet. That is because many of these homes were built in the 1950s and 1960s. On the other hand, a three bedroom, 1.5 bath starter home near downtown allows you the privacy you can’t get in an apartment. Redevelopment consists of replacing small single family homes with condos and townhomes; that gives the Empire area far more duplexes than outer suburban subdivisions. But they remain relatively affordable and ideal for young families. That is one reason why the average age of residents in Empire is just 34 years old.

The Empire area is northwest of Magnolia Medical Center. The famous Grand Boulevard loop forms the northern border of the subdivision. Magnolia Avenue is the southern edge of the neighborhood. Sunslope Cemetery is northeast of the subdivision. That sits between this neighborhood and Highway 15. Main Street is several blocks to the west.

The neighborhood includes Garretson Elementary School and Vicentia Elementary School. Garretson Elementary School is located off Garretson Avenue. Students are normally assigned to Garretson Elementary. They are sent to Auburndale Intermediate School for seventh and eighth grade. That school feeds into Centennial High School. Students are in easy commuting distance of Excelsior Charter School Corona. Alternatively, you could send your kids to John Stallings Elementary School; that is next to Centennial High School. Some students end up at Lincoln Fundamental Elementary School off Fullerton Avenue. Crossroads Christian School is located near the intersection of Fullerton Avenue and Ontario Avenue.

Kellogg Park is behind Crossroads Christian School. The five acre park can be accessed via Kellogg Avenue. Kellogg Park is an ADA accessible park. It has standard amenities like bathrooms, water fountains, and picnic tables. It has a playground, tennis courts and horseshoe pits. Residents aren’t far from Santana Regional Park. That has soccer fields, baseball fields, playgrounds and a skate park.

The Empire area has better than average public transportation score of 19 thanks to the bus routes on Main Street. The area has a higher than average walk score for Corona because you can walk to the retail outlets at the intersection of Rimpau Avenue and Magnolia Avenue as well as the medical facilities on Magnolia Avenue. For example, Kaiser Permanente has medical offices next to the Magnolia Medical Center. And this is the only area where you could walk to a psychiatric treatment center as well as K-12 schools. Note that Corona Regional Medical Center is off Main Street inside of the Grand Boulevard, not in Empire, but nearly every other downtown healthcare provider is. That is why its walk score is 49 while the average for the city as a whole is in the thirties. The neighborhood has a bike score of 33. Downtown Corona gets more points for bike riders since it has more dedicated bike lanes.
