SanRamonPanoramaSome people love the hustle and bustle of San Francisco city life, but others prefer the quiet life, with easy access to the city’s attractions. If you’re more into undisturbed early morning walks or driving around neighborhoods chock-full of green, San Ramon may be perfect for you. With an acclaimed school district and several parks and recreational activities to boast, here are a few reasons to consider living in San Ramon.

Schools

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) features award-winning schools with high-achieving students. Compared with other large school districts with over 25,000 students, students in the SRVUSD scored the highest in English Language Arts (ELA) and second highest in mathematics on the 2015 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).

SRVUSD is also committed to providing resources for home-schooled students through its alternate K-12 school called Venture Independent Study School. No matter what kind of education you wish to pursue for your child, SRVUSD will ensure that you are supported.

Shopping

While The Marketplace Shopping Center and Shops at Bishop Ranch serve San Ramon well, planners of City Center at Bishop Ranch are currently heading a new project aimed at building the downtown San Ramon never had. The project aims to give people a core place, infused with a lively, energetic atmosphere, to gather with its 350,000 square feet of quality shops and restaurants, a multi-screen movie theater, one-acre piazza lined with trees primed for outdoor performances and art exhibitions, and more. Developers are eyeing the spring of 2017 for the grand opening but in the meantime, San Ramon still has plenty of entertainment for all to enjoy.

Parks and Recreation

The city contains many parks along with several gorgeous fountains (from tall springs to waterfalls cascading down bedrocks) for the community to enjoy. For its work in maintaining and preserving a healthy urban forest, San Ramon was also awarded the Tree City USA title in 2001 by the National Arbor Day Foundation.

Several recreation activities are available for residents of all ages: after school enrichment, recreational sports lessons, holiday concerts, etc. The Art and Wind Festival is a popular event of San Ramon residents with several food stalls, arts and craft activities, kite attractions, and numerous performances lined up every year. Whether you’re an aspiring musician interested in guitar lessons or a family looking for an all-ages show, San Ramon has something for you.

Gale Ranch

Gale Ranch is one of few housing developments that not only offers luxury townhomes but also encompasses the above three elements in its neighborhood. With its establishment in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District, a plaza at its center, a golf club featuring an 18-hole gold course, and enormous amounts of open space and easy access to community centers, Gale Ranch offers a high-quality lifestyle where residents can be proud of their community.
