The City contains 14 City Parks, including an equestrian arena and a municipal pool, as well as a state park and a 200-acre regional park with 3 lakes for swimming, boating, and fishing, plus campgrounds and playgrounds for the entire family. Yucaipa’s "small town" atmosphere, diverse population, abundant parks and open spaces, and varied recreation opportunities make for a "get-away" destination.
Housing to accommodate all lifestyles is readily available, and 3 museums, a library, a Senior Center, 2 theater groups, and over 40 churches and 90 social or business clubs round out the community. Residents enjoy cleaner air and cooler temperatures as a result of the higher elevations, and a comprehensive approach to community safety has produced one of the lowest rates of crime for comparably sized cities anywhere in the State.
