Moraga is an affluent suburban town located in Contra Costa County, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total permanent population of 16,290. Moraga is best known as the location of Saint Mary's College of California. Residents of Moraga (known as "Moragans") value the town's schools, low crime rate, and its semi-rural atmosphere that is the result of strict limits on development. A bowling alley which served as the children's sole source of entertainment was dismantled in 1997, prompting them to derisively refer to their town as "Boraga"
