HEMET
California, U.S.A.
THE GREEN CITY
Home to around 81,750 people, the City of Hemet is nestled in the San Jacinto Valley in Riverside County,
The city was incorporated in 1910, and was long an agricultural trading center. Thanks to the presence of Lake Hemet, for which the city is named, crops like citrus, peaches, olives and walnuts flourished in the area, and the city grew as a result. Hemet has long hosted the Agricultural District Farmer's Fair of Riverside County, which started off as the Hemet Turkey Show in 1936 and is now located in Perris. During World War II, Hemet was home to the Ryan School of Aeronautics, a pilot school for the Army Air Force. Today, the Hemet-Ryan Airport exists at the old site. When large-scale residential development began in the 1960s, it mostly consisted of mobile home parks and retirement communities. This gave Hemet a reputation as a working-class retirement area; but in the 1980s, single-family homes and big-box retail began to sprout on former ranch land. Since then, the city's housing and population has skyrocketed, thanks to the area's affordability and proximity to employment centers like Corona, Riverside and San Bernardino. Part of the allure is also its relatively rural character, which in combination with all the city's conveniences has made it an attractive choice for working-class families. There are plenty of things to do for fun in Hemet! Check out the Hemet Museum at the intersection of State Street and Florida Avenue in downtown; a museum of local history, agricultural displays, and Native American artifacts. Families may enjoy an exciting visit with kids to the Western Science Center, situated in the southern part of the city at the intersection of Domenigoni parkway and Searl Parkway. The science center features thrilling exhibits of Ice Age mammals including Max, the largest mastodon found in the Western United States. Hemet is also known for hosting the longest running outdoor play in the country, the Ramona Pageant, which has played since 1923 and is now held at the Ramona Bowl natural amphitheater; situated just beside Hemet in the Riverside County foothills. One of the best things in Hemet is the green surroundings, and Hemet has been named a Tree City USA for the past 20 years thanks to its dedication to the local forest. Residents have access to the beautiful Diamond Valley Lake, which offers plenty of recreation like boating and fishing, as well as a separate aquatic center. There are also five spacious parks in the city with countless amenities; Weston Park, Simpson Park, Mary Henley Park, Gibbel Park and Valley Wide Community Sports Park.
