Twentynine Palms is the home of Joshua Tree National Park and the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center. We are known for our spectacular night skies (observatory coming soon!) our amazing public arts program (murals, sculptures and galleries), as well as plenty of room for outdoor activities!
The City of Twentynine Palms is in the middle of the Mojave Desert between Los Angeles and the Colorado River. The city was incorporated on November 23, 1987, and encompasses 58 square miles (larger than the City of San Francisco), and has grown from a population of 11,000 to more than 27,000. The City of Twentynine Palms is dedicated to securing the quality of life through development and preservation.
About 5 miles from the main gate of the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) lays the business center of Twentynine Palms.
Another development that has started is Sky's the Limit Observatory & Nature Center. The center will consist of three phases: Phase One - the Orrery, a representation of the solar system showing the orbits of the planets; Phase Two - construction of the observatory, building/lecture hall, and amphitheater; and Phase Three - construction of the classrooms and research facilities. The observatory will take about six years to complete. However, during construction the center will offer public activities using the elements of each completed phase.
Twentynine Palms is proud of its dark night sky in which residents and visitors are still able to see constellations and planets clearly. Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP) offers more then just spectacular stargazing; there is hiking, rock climbing, camping, mountain biking, wildflower viewing, bird watching, horseback riding, and nature walks. Next to the park's visitor's center is the Joshua Tree National Park Association Desert Institute. The institute offers field courses (several for college credit), community lectures, and custom designed programs for adults and children.
Besides the park there are various other activities to explore. The city is famous worldwide for its murals, including one designed and painted by John Pugh. There is also the Old Schoolhouse Museum, the 29 Palms Art Gallery, Roadrunner Dunes Golf Course, Theatre 29, Blak Box Theatre, Pioneertown, and much more.
Nearby, in the village of Joshua Tree is Copper Mountain College. CMC offers associates degrees in various fields as well as vocational certification. Copper Mountain College also has a great career center to assist the public and students in preparing for a job/career and finding jobs in the area. Chapman University, a private institution with its main campus in Orange County, has a high desert campus located on the Marine Corps base.
Housing in Twentynine Palms is reasonable for large and small families. Types of homes include: large modern residences, custom homes, small subdivision dwellings, and apartment complexes.
