Visitor Information

Poway is known as “the city in the country.” In December 1980, Poway incorporated as a full-service, general law city, which operates under the council/manager form of government. Prior to that, Poway was an unincorporated area of San Diego.

According to the City's official Web site, poway.org, the name of the valley of Poway (Pauwai) is derived from the language of the Diegueno and Luiseno Indians, who inhabited the area for several hundred years before the Spaniards arrived. Traces of these Native Americans still remain among modern Poway's approximately 60,000 residents.

Visitors and residents alike enjoy Poway's outstanding outdoor amenities. Poway boasts more than 55 miles of some of trails, which are excellent for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Blue Sky Ecological Reserve is a 700-acre canyon rich in flora, birds and wildlife. The construction of the Poway dam in 1971 created Lake Poway, which is a popular spot for picnics, fishing and a variety of water sports.
