Piedmont is a small residential community that is notable for its charming homes and estates and tree-lined streets. Although primarily a residential community, it enjoys the abundance of cultural and recreational activities of its larger neighbors, Oakland and Berkeley.
Although Piedmont is a “city within a city”, as it is completely surrounded by Oakland, it retains a small town life enhanced by first rate city services, including its own fire, police, public works and top rated school system. Located just minutes from San Francisco, Emeryville, and the Oakland financial district, Piedmont remains one of the top choices for residents who want to enjoy community life while remaining close to large centers of commerce.
Piedmont has approximately 11,000 residents, 3,800 households and covers 1.7 square miles. The small downtown enjoys Mulberry’s Market (the only shopping in town), three banks, a gas station and several professional offices. At the center of town is Piedmont Park, often a central meeting area for children and adults, where they can enjoy picnics, off-leash walks with a dog, numerous concerts and festivals and a play area for children.
