Spring Valley

History

Spring Valley is named for the natural spring located there. It was long a watering place and home of theKumeyaay tribe, who called it Neti or Meti. Spanish conquerors drove off the natives and used the area for cattle, calling it El aguaje de San Jorge (St. George’s Spring). In 1863 Judge Augustus S. Ensworth of San Diego filed a claim for a 160 acre ranch that included the spring. The ranch, and the small adobe house he built there, were sold to Rufus King Porter and later to historian Hubert Howe Bancroft. The adobe is now a National Historic Landmark

Fun facts

The Spring Valley area is only 12 miles east of downtown San Diego. It is a census-designated place (CDP) and the population was 28,205 at the 2010 census. The name “Spring Valley” may also refer to a wider area including the Spring Valley CDP, La Presa and part of the neighborhood of Casa de Oro (which extends into La Mesa ).

Activities

Spring Valley provides a pleasing blend of country beauty and urban convenience. Recreational amenities include a large park and community center that offers sports facilities and classes that appeal to all ages and interest.
