Pineridge (formerly, Kenyon and Pine Ridge)[2] is an unincorporated community in Fresno County, California.[1] It is located 4 miles (6.4 km) southwest of Shaver Lake Heights,[2] at an elevation of 4842 feet (1476 m).[1]

The Kenyon post office opened in 1890, the name was changed to Pine Ridge in 1892, to Pineridge in 1895, and closed in 1944.[2] The name Kenyon is in honor of Silas W. Kenyon, its first postmaster.[2]
