East of San Francisco, with Mount Diablo as a beautiful backdrop, many people call the city of San Ramon home. The stunning mix of rolling hills in the Diablo range, combined with the flat basin of the San Ramon Valley, create a spectacular background for the community, and while most of the city itself is urban, it is surrounded by golden grasslands and oak tree orchards along its undeveloped perimeters. Since it is at the epicenter of job growth throughout the Bay Area, it’s fairly easy to commute to the nearby cities of San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland.
At one point San Ramon real estate was mainly known as a quintessential suburb, but today it is transforming itself into a “case study in smart redevelopment”. In 2018, the acclaimed architect Renzo Piano will be finishing his City Center Bishop Ranch project which will bring more residential units, shops, and restaurants to the city, replacing the old office space that was taken down. It will even provide the community with a one acre piazza for city-wide events and community building gatherings.
San Ramon is proud to offer its residents a wealth of options for spending their recreational time. Surrounded by so much wild beauty, many people take advantage of all the environment has to offer when they are looking for ways to unwind at the end of a busy day. At the northern end of Bollinger Canyon to the northwest, the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness provides the city’s residents with a genuine wilderness getaway complete with hiking trails and plenty of wildlife, while the smaller Bishop Ranch Regional Preserve can be found to the city’s east. For those who prefer their outdoor spaces a bit less wild, the community’s 43 acre Central Park provides a gathering place for events like the farmer’s markets and outdoor movie nights, while the evolving city center is an easy walking distance from the Ramon Community Center.
Families who call San Ramon home have access to its amazing school district with some of the best schools in the state. With 22 elementary school options from Alamo, to Neil Armstrong, to Walt Disney, students have a wide variety of choices for their primary school years to ensure that everyone begins their academic career on the right foot. As the community’s children grow, they have nine top-quality middle schools to choose from, like Diablo Vista and Pine Valley, where teachers are dedicated to their highest growth and development. Then, families have four elite high school options for their adolescents to choose from where they can be supported as they stand on the cusp of adulthood and prepare for their futures. Each school encourages its students to work toward their future goals with dedication and resolve. The community also offers multiple alternative educational opportunities for those who need them, ensuring that every student in their district is able to reach their full potential.
