Clairemont Information & Highlights

The community of Clairemont is a suburban neighborhood within the city of San Diego, California, in San Diego County in the southern part of the state on the West Coast. The community is further subdivided into the neighborhoods of North Clairemont, South Clairemont, Clairemont Mesa East and Clairemont Mesa West, and it is bounded by State Route 52 to the north, Linda Vista to the south, Interstate 805 to the east and Interstate 5 to the west. The community lies about eight miles due north of downtown San Diego.

The community was first developed in the 1950s, and it took its name after the wife of one of the developers, Carlos Tavares's wife, Marjorie Claire. Residents began to populate the community in 1951, and it became the city of San Diego's largest subdivision in the post-World War II era. The San Clemente Canyon and the Tecolote Canyon remain the only undeveloped parcels of land left in the community today, as residents fought to keep them development-free. They were designated officially as parks in the 1970s.

Within just minutes of the community are attractions like the Mission Bay Golf Course and Mission Bay Park, which is the largest man-made water park in the country at more than 4,000 acres and includes San Diego Sea World, with 27 miles of shoreline. The San Diego International Airport is just five miles south. In the community is the Clairemont Village Shopping Center, the Sam Sneed All American Golf Course in Tecolote Canyon National Park and South Clairemont Community Park.
