Palm Springs is a desert resort city in Riverside County, California, within the Coachella Valley. It is located approximately 37miles (60 kilometres) east of San Bernardino, 111miles (179 kilometres) east of Los Angeles, 136miles (219 kilometres) northeast of San Diego, and 269miles (433 kilometres) west of Phoenix, Arizona. The population was 44,552 at the 2010 census. The city spans over 94 square miles, making it the largest city in the county by size. Golf, swimming, tennis, horseback riding, biking, and hiking in the nearby desert and mountain areas are major forms of recreation in Palm Springs. Archaeological research has shown that the Cahuilla people have lived in the area for the past 350500 years. The Cahuilla name for the area was "Se-Khi" (boiling water). When the Agua Caliente Reservation was established by the United States government in 1896, the reservation land was composed of alternating sections (640 acres) of land laid out across the desert in a checkerboard pattern. The alternating, non-reservation sections, were granted to the Southern Pacific Railroad as an incentive to bring rail lines through the open desert. Presently the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians is composed of several smaller bands who live in the modern day Coachella Valley and San Gorgonio Pass areas. The Agua Caliente Reservation occupies 32,000 acres (13,000ha), of which 6,700 acres (2,700ha) lie within the city limits, making the Agua Caliente band the city's largest landowner. (Tribal enrollment is currently estimated at between 296 and 365 people.)
