Fun Fact: The city hall of Pleasant Hill, completed in the late 20th century, has won several awards for architectural design.
With its Mediterranean climate, lush parks, and quaint downtown, Pleasant Hill is a poster child for the picture-perfect California suburb. It’s known for its small-town charm and its emphasis on community, and there are countless opportunities to get involved, from the annual Community Service Day and Relay for Life to local concerts and festivals. The Parks and Rec Department is known for providing outstanding childcare, camps, clubs, and activities for all ages, as well. As a close-knit suburb situated in a major metropolitan area, Pleasant Hill offers the best of both worlds!
