With just over 50,000 residents and half of its land area designated as open space, Poway is known as “The City in the Country”. The city has 25 parks and over 80 miles of trails. Old Poway Park and Lake Poway offer an assortment of activities, from window shopping to movies under the night sky, a summer concert series to fishing and miniature train rides. The Boardwalk Craft Market and the Farmers Market take place on Saturdays in the Park. Each year, the city hosts about 50 community events such as the Old Fashioned 4th of July, Train Song Festival, Christmas in the Park, and the Youth Fishing Derby.
Poway has a high standard of living and is characterized as an upper middle class community with a median family income and home prices well above that of the county and state. The city's crime rates have been substantially lower than the state average for over 9 consecutive years, making it the safest city overall in San Diego since 1981. The quality of the public schools tends to be much higher than the state average.
