Should you move to Pleasanton California? Top 5 Reasons to MOVE to Pleasanton- What you need to know about Pleasanton, CA and why.
Hi, I’m Warren Oberholser. I’m a realtor in the East Bay Tri-Valley area in Northern California. My goal is to help both buyers and sellers get maximum results for one of their biggest investments, their home.
Over the past I’ve posted several videos on my YouTube channel on Pleasanton from their community parks, local neighborhood property tours, events, and activities. I even have one on how not to make mistakes when buying a home in Pleasanton. Therefore, since my wife and I have lived in Pleasanton for over 40 years, raised our children here, we know the town pretty well. So, by compiling all this information has given me the resources to put together the top five reasons why you should move to Pleasanton.
Let’s get started with the five reasons you should move to Pleasanton, California.
Number one, Pleasanton has so much to do. I’m going to begin with the Alameda County Fairgrounds. They, of course, host the annual County Fair, and during that time period, they have horse races. Late in the summer, they have the GoodGuy Car Show, and in the fall, they have the haunted theme park Pirates of Emerson, which is a Halloween tradition.
Golf. Pleasanton has four golf courses, Pleasanton Golf Center, Callippe Preserve, Ruby Hill, and Castlewood Country Club. For this article, I’m just going to talk about the public golf courses. Let’s start with Callippe Preserve. It’s an 18-hole golf course. The architect is Brian Costello. It opened up in 2005. The course is well laid out and it has amazing stunning views. Now, if you need to practice your drive or tune-up your short game, I recommend going to Pleasanton Golf Center. It’s located inside the Alameda County Fairgrounds. They have a nine-hole golf course located inside the race track, and they have a full driving range and putting green.
Pleasanton has great bike and walking paths. They have approximately 24 miles of trails and 600 acres of undeveloped space. This is ideal for horseback riding, day hikes, and getting a little exercise with your mountain bike. Pleasanton also has 44 neighborhood (Kottinger parks, Tawny park, Vintage Hills Park and community parks. Now, these parks offer a variety of amenities from baseball, soccer, and general exercise fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, aquatic water park, dog park, and some have restrooms, picnic tables, and barbecues.
Number two, Pleasanton’s neighborhoods. Pleasanton’s neighborhoods are beautiful, quiet, and safe. I posted several property tour videos on my YouTube channel that feature specific Pleasanton neighborhoods (Vintage Hills, Vintage Heights, Vintage Hills II, Foxborough Estates). The key items that separate one neighborhood from the other is age, size of the property, and of course, cost. You’ll find the majority of Pleasanton neighborhoods are in good order. There are a few gated communities in Pleasanton. The two main ones are Golden Eagle Estates and Ruby Hill.
Number three, Great schools. One of the big features for Pleasanton is their award-winning schools. In 2020, Pleasanton Unified School District was rated as the 11th top public school district in California and number one in Alameda County. There’s approximately 15,000 students from K-12 with a student to teacher ratio of just 24 to one.
Number four. Pleasanton’s downtown Main Street. For restaurants, unique shops, and entertainment, you’ve got Pleasanton downtown main street (Pleasanton Downtown Association).
Number five, Pleasanton is a very friendly and community-focused town. Probably one of the main features that separates Pleasanton apart from other towns is its connection it has with its community. As I just discussed, Pleasanton’s downtown Main Street area hosts numerous events and activities throughout the year. They have a variety of activities such as their famous Saturday Morning Farmer’s Market, weekend street fairs, and parades, but there’s so much more.
The City of Pleasanton Recreation Department has several different sports programs to include basketball, baseball, soccer, swimming, skateboard, tennis, outdoor hockey, golf, et cetera. During the summer months, they have day camp for kids.
For the performing arts, Pleasanton has the Firehouse Arts Center. They host several different events, including concerts and plays.
