Pleasant Hill Information
Characterized as a small, “old-fashioned” community, Pleasant Hill is reminiscent of yesterday’s friendly villages where shop owners recognized their customers and neighbors were quick to wave or extend a personal greeting. The caring, intimate atmosphere created by residents who call Pleasant Hill their home is one of the attractions to this well-balanced community.
The local parks and recreation district is recognized as one of the finest in the state, operating wonderful parks that feature a diversity of amenities ranging from play areas and athletic facilities for the young to scenic views for photography buffs.
Just fifteen miles from town, the highest mountain in the coastal range dominates the skyline. Open spaces, a swimming pool, exercise courses, sand volleyball courts and acres of open space and meadows combine with regional highlights such as the twelve mile Contra Costa Canal Trail.
Residents are justly proud of the distinctive, new downtown district featuring major retailers, offices, local shops and convenient services in an inviting “Main Street” setting.
