With a population of just under 200,000 people as of 2010, Fontana, California, is too big to be a village. Yet, at the same time this town tries to invoke the spirit of a small community. Family-friendly events are hosted throughout the year to encourage a love of art, nature and sport.
Summer evening concerts are held at local parks, of which there are many. Certain parks are geared towards conservation. Others provide little children with a place to play. Center Stage Theater is also on hand to showcase the talents of local and visiting performers. This facility hosts theater in all genres as well as murder mysteries and cabarets.
In Fontana, the numbers of citizens over the age of 65 is only about 5% according to the city website. Much of the community is made up of individuals under the age of 45. This makes it a young city, but the needs of active seniors are not forgotten. They can spend time at their beautiful seniors’ center which is open Monday to Saturday. This facility hosts cards games, craft opportunities and billiards matches. There are computers and a library so that senior citizens can stay on top of the latest technological and literary trends.
