Location of Piedmont, California

Piedmont is a city located in Alameda County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 10,952. Piedmont is a small, primarily residential community with fine architecture, tree-lined streets, and competitive city schools and is considered by many to be one of the most desirable residential communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Piedmont is an affluent community with the average land value being markedly above the already high bay area real estate costs. Piedmont is notable for its minimal amount of commerce when compared to its statistically similar counterparts.

Piedmont is largly zoned for residential use. It has one small commercial district in the center of town consisting of a gas stations, three banks, a realty office, some professional offices and a small convenience store and has several other commercial enterprises along Grand Avenue heading into Oakland. Piedmont is served by two local newspapers, the citizen run weekly newspaper, the Piedmont Post, and a neighborhood newspaper, the Piedmonter, organized under the Contra Costa Times news organization.

Piedmont is primarily known for its excellent school system with three elementary schools, a middle school and two high schools. Piedmont High School matriculates a high percentage (over 90%) of students bound for college. Piedmont is one of very few California public school systems to achieve such success. This may be attributed to the dedicated and affluent population paying large amounts of property tax and putting forth large donations frequently to subsidise their public schools, as well as to the demographics of the community. Witter field, home of the Piedmont Highlanders High School Football team, was recently (1998-2000) rebuilt improving it from an aging, undersized sports field to a new facility, the envy of neighboring communities. Similar improvements have recently been made to the fields adjacent to the Linda Beach Elementary School.

Piedmont also has several nice parks and a community center. Recent community efforts have raised funds to improve Dracena Park which will receive a new play area in 2005 or 2006.

The city itself is located in Oakland's north-eastern section, although it technically borders closer to West Oakland. It is situated almost centrally in regards to the bay area's fuller shape, putting it nearly directly across the bay bridge from San Francisco, California, and very close to Berkeley, California.
