Smiley Heights neighborhood dates back to the late 1880’s when Alfred and Albert Smiley were drawn to the beautiful views of the San Timoteo Canyon and decided to purchase 200 brush covered acres in the area, turning it into a park. Many of the trees and green landscape from the park still remain, surrounding some of the most exquisite homes in Redlands. It is known for its well-established neighborhoods of many home styles from old to new. One of the draws to the area remains to be the beautiful valley and canyon views depending on where you are located.
Some of the amenities of this area include Hillside Memorial Park, the San Timoteo Nature Sanctuary and many equestrian centers.
