Chino (CHEE-noh; Spanish for "Curly") is a city in the western end of San Bernardino County, California, United States. Chino's surroundings have long been a center of agriculture and dairy farming, providing milk products in Southern California and much of the southwestern U.S. The city's official logo features an overflowing cornucopia. The population was 77,983 at the 2010 census. It is bounded by Chino Hills and Los Angeles County to the west, Pomona to the northwest, unincorporated San Bernardino.

It hosted shooting events for the 1984 Summer Olympics at the Prado Olympic Shooting Park in the Prada Regional Park. The town was incorporated into a city by the City of Chino in 1910. It was named after Rancho Santa Ana del Chino, which is Spanish for Saint Anne, but the exact meaning of "Chino" has been explained in different ways. The president of the Chino Valley Historical Society, drawing on Civil War-era letters, designates the "curl" referenced in the toponym as that at the top of the grama grass that abounded in the valley. In 2008, Chino was awarded the prestigious "100 Best Communities for Youth" award for the second time in three years. It became the largest milk-producing community in the southwest in the 1950s through 1980s.


Chino is the primary city name, but also Montclair, Ontario are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is City of Chino. The land grant on which the town was founded was called Rancho Santa Ana del Chino. One explanation is that the "Chino" (curly-haired person or mixed-race person) was the chief of the local Native American village. The president of the Chino Valley Historical Society, drawing on Civil War-era letters, designates the "curl" referenced in the toponym as that at the top of the grama grass that abounded in the valley. Santa Ana is Spanish for Saint Anne, but the exact meaning of " Chino" has been explained in different ways. The town's name is derived from the word "chino" which means "curly" or "curley" in Spanish. The city's name comes from the name of a Native American chief, Chino, who lived in the area in the early 1800s. The name of the town is also Spanish for "Saint Anne", which is a Spanish word for "beautiful" and "saint" The town is named after the town of Santa Ana, Spain, which was founded in the 16th century by the Spanish. It is located on the banks of the Santa Ana River, which flows into the San Francisco Bay. It has a population of about 2,000 people, about half of whom live in or near the city of San Francisco. It was founded on a land grant from the Spanish in the 17th century, and was named after Santa Ana. It became a U.S. state in the 18th century.


The Tongva had a settlement called Wapijangna in the Santa Ana River watershed. The Spanish crown claimed the land until Mexican independence was finalized and possession fell to the Mexican government. In 1850, California was admitted to the union, and the process of separating privately held lands from the public domain began. The Chino Valley, located at the foot of an alluvial plain with fertile topsoil reaching depths of 4 feet (1.2 m), was an agricultural mecca from the 1890s up through the mid-20th century. Sugar beets were a significant part of the economy in the early 1900s, followed by sweet corn (marketed as "Chino corn" throughout the Pacific coast area), peaches, walnuts, tomatoes, and strawberries. The dairy industry flourished from the 1950s through the 1980s, with dairy-friendly zoning in the southwest corner of San Bernardino County encouraging many ethnic Dutch families to locate there and become the cornerstone of the industry. In the 1970s, Chino developed into a small suburban city, forming the western anchor of the Inland Empire region, and now the city's development has gradually taken on a more middle-class character. According to the 2004 FBI UCR, the city had about 3.6 violent crimes per 1,000 population, which is typical for an American suburb, and its property crime below average. The city's official logo/crest features an overflowing cornucopia.
