The town of Eureka lies at the southern end of Diamond Valley, while the northern end is home to an alkali flat. Several small lakes are located in the western part of the valley near Sadler Brown Road. Eureka Airport is also located towards the southern end of the valley.

Diamond Valley is also known for their farms that grow Timothy hay, Alfalfa hay, wheat, oats, and orchard grass. The hay provides feed for racetracks, dairies, and feed stores throughout the United States and foreign export market
