Welcome to Pleasanton

A thriving city east of San Francisco since it was incorporated in 1894.

 

Thanks to historic preservation efforts, much of the downtown built in the early 20th century is intact and features Gothic Revival, Pioneer, Italianate, Colonial Revival and Queen Anne architectural styles.

 

Now with modern, upscale amenities, ample outdoor space and a top-rated school district, Pleasanton is the perfect mid-sized city (approximately 80,000 residents). Over the last 15 years, the city has been listed by numerous publications as one of the best places to live in America.

 

Pleasanton is a business hub in the Bay Area, with headquarters of several American corporations, including Safeway, Roche Molecular Diagnostics, Ellie Mae (software), Blackhawk Network Holdings (financial products), and Veeva Systems (cloud computing).

 

The historic downtown is home to 550 shops, restaurants and businesses and hosts year-round events for the community, like wine strolls and brew crawls, food festivals, antique fairs, kids activities, and concerts.

 

Outdoor activities are a breeze on the 1,200 acres of parks, open space and trails. And the views of the surrounding peaks and valleys are stunning.

 

The city’s cultural life comes alive at The Firehouse Arts Center with theater, film, poetry and music performances, a fine arts gallery, a youth theater company, and indoor-outdoor space for events.
