About Fontana, California

The City of Fontana was incorporated on June 25, 1952. The City and its Sphere of Influence (SOI) encompass an area of approximately 52.4 square miles and contain a population of approximately 214,000 people, making it the second-most populous city in San Bernardino County and the 19th largest in the state. It is located in San Bernardino County, approximately 50 miles east of Los Angeles. Due to its geographic location, the City is identified as “The Crossroads of the Inland Empire”. The name fontana is Italian for fountain or water source, being in close proximity to the Santa Ana River to the east.

Founded by Azariel Blanchard Miller in 1913, it began as an agricultural community until entrepreneur Henry J. Kaiser built a large steel mill in the area. It is now a regional hub of the trucking industry, with the east-west Interstate 10 and State Route 210 crossing the city and Interstate 15 passing diagonally through its northwestern quadrant.

Since then, the City has continued to grow rapidly due to several factors, including the development of Kaiser Permanente Hospital, one of the largest medical facilities in the region. Fontana has also constructed the largest library in San Bernardino County, built state-of the art facilities, and parks that are unparalleled by any city around. It is also home to a renovated historic theater, a municipal park, and the Auto Club Speedway on the site of the Kaiser Steel Mill. Fontana also hosts the Fontana Days Half Marathon and 5K run. This race is the fastest half-marathon course in the world.

In 2008, after reviewing data from the United States Census Bureau, the National Center for Education Statistics, the National Center for Health Statistics, and the American Bar Association, Best Life magazine deemed Fontana the 24th best place to raise a family in the United States. In addition, Fontana was named one of the Nation’s 100 Best Communities for Young People by America’s Promise Alliance and ING in 2008 and again in 2010. In 2014, the City was named in the Top 20 Safest Cities in the Nation by Business Insider and in 2017, it was named the second strongest City financially by the Fiscal Times.
