Jurupa Valley is a city in Riverside County, California. On March 8, 2011, voters approved a ballot measure, designated as Measure A, to incorporate the area into its own city; as a result, the area has been an incorporated city since July 1, 2011.[2]

The city of Jurupa Valley covers approximately 43.5 square miles (113 km2), and has an estimated population of 94,235.
