Poway offers its residents gorgeous parks, fishing at Lake Poway, numerous horse trails, the blue sky reserve nature preserve and outstanding Poway Unified School District. Poway has several planned communities, but offers residents mix of semi-custom and custom homes on large lots. Many areas are free from homeowner’s associations and neighborhood rules and regulations. Old Poway offers more affordable housing while the northern half has many upscale homes.
