Its population was 24,697 at the 2010 census, up from 24,100 at the 2000 census. The explorer Sebastian Vizcaino gave Coronado its name and drew its first map in 1602. Three ships of the U.S. Navy have been named after the city, including USS Coronados. The city has a total area of 32.7 square miles (85 km²) of which 20.5 km² (7.9 mi2) is land. In 1969, the San Diego Bridge was opened, allowing much faster transit between the bay and downtown San Diego via the Silver Strand. The bridge is made up of five lanes, one of which is controlled by a moveable barrier that allows for better traffic during the morning rush hours. In the evening, it is moved to create three lanes to create a lane going south towards Coronados. In 2009, it was moved again to create two lanes, and it is again moved in the evening to create one lane going north towards San Diego. On the southern side of the town is Naval Amphibious Base Coronada, a training center for Navy SEALs and Special warfare combatant-craft crewmen (SWCC). Both facilities are part of the larger Naval Base Cor onado complex. The "Country Club" area on the northwest side of Coronido, the "Glorietta" area and golf course on the southeast side ofCoronados is a golf course.

History

Coronado is the primary city name, but also San Diego are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is City of Coronado. The city of Coronado was established on December 11, 1887. It was named after the city's first inhabitants, the Kumeyaay people. The city's name is derived from the word "coronado" which means "home" or "place" in Spanish. The town's name was changed to "Coronada" in 1891. It is now known as "Cronado" after the town's last inhabitants, who left in the 1930s. The last Kumeyas to leave the city were in the late 1950s and early 1960s, when the city was re-named "Corto de Coronados" The city is now home to the University of California, San Diego, which was founded in 1883. The university is located in the heart of the city, on the north side of the San Diego peninsula. It has a population of around 2,000 people, and is located on the west coast of the island. It also has a number of smaller communities, such as the town of Puyallup, which is on the east coast. The area was once known as the "Kumeyay" because of the number of people living in the area, and because of its proximity to the ocean. The name "CorONado" means "Kite Town" in English. The word "Corneado" is Spanish for "corneo" which is the name of a small town on the south coast of California.

Geography

Coronado is a tied island connected to the mainland by a tombolo known as the Silver Strand. On the southern side of the town is Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, a training center for Navy SEALs and Special warfare combatant-craft crewmen. The city has a semi-arid climate, abbreviated "BSk" on climate maps. It is located in San Diego Bay, which was once a shallow inlet of water called the Spanish Bight. The development of North Island by the U.S. Navy prior to and during World War II led to the filling of the bight by July 1944, combining the land areas into a single body. In 1969, the San Diegocoronado Bridge was opened, allowing much faster transit between the cities than bay ferries or driving via State Route 75 along the SilverStrand. The bridge is made up of five lanes, one of which is controlled by a moveable barrier that allows for better traffic flow during rush hours. It has a total area of 32.7 square miles (85 km²); 20.5 km² (7.9 mi2) of the city is land and 24.7 sq mi2 (64 km²) is water. The city is home to the Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI or "North Island") on Coronados, which is part of the larger Naval Base Cor onado complex. The town has increased in size due to dredge material being dumped on its shoreline and the natural accumulation of sand.
