Welcome to Bonita.
Bonita is a census-designated place in southern San Diego County, huddled between the cities of Chula Vista, National City and San Diego. Home to around 12,500 people, Bonita occupies a five mile stretch of the Sweetwater River with its valley and surrounding hills; bounded upstream by the Sweetwater Reservoir and downstream by Interstate 805. The word Bonita means Beautiful in Spanish, and was the name of a ranch owned by Henry Ernest Cooper in the late 19th century. The ranch was used to grow lemons, and the citrus industry flourished in the area during its the early years. For more information on Bonita's history, stop by the Bonita Historical Museum; the principal repository of historical information for the Lower Sweetwater Valley. Much of modern Bonita features housing tracts built throughout the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, including Bonita Verde Estates, Bonita Downs, Bonita Fairways and a dozen others. Bonita is considered a rural and equestrian enclave in the heart of suburbia, and one of the most visible features of the Bonita recreational life is the walking trail looping the Chula Vista Municipal Golf Course. A myriad of residents walk, run and ride this trail daily for both leisure and fitness purposes, and for many, it is one of the most foundational components of the Bonita-lifestyle. After the Sweetwater Regional Park was expanded and improved in the late 1990s, visitors could enjoy even more walking and equestrian trails. The park also received the addition of a camping area at Summit Meadow Road, and today, practically the entire valley from the reservoir to I-805 is designated recreational space. One of the popular places to fish is the Sweetwater County Park, a wildlife preserve with small pond. Horseback riding is very much part of the Bonita community, and you'll find an abundance of trails in the Lower Sweetwater Valley; many residents keep their own horses and ride these trails daily. Those who enjoy golfing more than riding, can find their haven at the Bonita Golf Course or the Chula Vista Municipal Golf Course. To experience the Bonita community spirit first hand, attend the yearly Bonitafest, an annual parade and street fair along Bonita Road with lots of crafts, music, entertainment and food!
