Steve and Victoria Gore Welcome You to Spring Valley
Spring Valley is the largest un-incorporated community in the county of San Diego, covering thirteen and a half square miles. Located 11 miles east of the city of San Diego, Spring Valley is bordered by La Mesa and El Cajon to the North, Jamul and Dulzura to the East, Sweetwater and Bonita to the South, and Paradise Hills and Lemon Grove to the West. Within Spring Valley’s boundaries can be found a variety of smaller communities – Casa de Oro, Rancho San Diego, La Presa, Dictionary Hill, Mt. Helix, and Bancroft.
Spring Valley is named for the natural spring located there. It was long the home of the Kumeyaay 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).
