Pomona is a city located in Los Angeles County, California, in the eastern San Gabriel Valley. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 149,473. Pomona is the 5th largest city in Los Angeles County.

The city is named for Pomona, the ancient Roman goddess of fruit. In typical Southern California fashion of the 1870s, boosters gave the town this name before a single orange tree had been planted within its boundaries. By the 1880s, however, the arrival of railroads and Coachella Valley water had made it the western anchor of the citrus-growing region that encompassed most of what is now known unofficially as the Inland Empire. Pomona is generally not identified as part of the Inland Empire (sometimes referred to as "the 909") because it is in Los Angeles County, as opposed to being in Riverside or San Bernardino) Counties. However, because Pomona IS part of the 909 telephone area code which includes most of the communities in the Inland Empire, and because of the San Jose Hills on Pomona's western city limit that creates a physical/psychological 'barrier' between Pomona and the rest of Los Angeles County, it would not be unusual to include Pomona within the definition of the Inland Empire.

Pomona is best known as the location of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona). This university was established on the site of breakfast cereal magnate W.K. Kellogg's massive ranch located on the city's west side. It is also the home of the Los Angeles County fairgrounds. While a fair in the nation's most populous county might seem quaint, Cal Poly is one of several major agricultural research facilities in the state, and the fair's livestock exhibits are a noted attraction. (Other major California agriculture schools include Fresno State, UC Davis, and Chico State.)

Located in downtown Pomona is Western University of Health Science, with programs ranging from veterinary medicine to nursing to osteopathic medicine.

Pomona is not, as is often assumed, the site of Pomona College. Although this elite liberal arts institution was founded in the city, its campus has been in neighboring Claremont since 1889.
