City of Fresno

Fresno (Spanish for “ash tree”) is a major city in the San Joaquin Valley of California. It is the county seat of Fresno County and the largest city in the greater Central Valley region. Fresno covers about 112 square miles  and had a population of 542,107 in 2020, making it the fifth-most populous city in California, the most populous inland city in California (the Sacramento metro area has many more people than Fresno but the city proper has only 524,942 people), and the 34th-most populous city in the nation.

Named for the abundant ash trees lining the San Joaquin River, Fresno was founded in 1872 as a railway station of the Central Pacific Railroad before it was incorporated in 1885. The city has since become an economic hub of Fresno County and the San Joaquin Valley, with much of the surrounding areas in the Metropolitan Fresno region predominantly tied to large-scale agricultural production. Fresno is near the geographical center of California. It lies approximately 220 miles (350 km) north of Los Angeles, 170 miles  south of the state capital, Sacramento, and 185 miles  southeast of San Francisco. Yosemite National Park is about 60 miles to the north, Kings Canyon National Park is 60 miles  to the east, and Sequoia National Park is 75 miles  to the southeast.

Fresno is also the third-largest majority-Hispanic city in the United States, with 50.5% of its population being Hispanic in 2020.
