Valley Trails Reviews

All Categories
Very suburban, high emphasis on competitive youth sports, lots of parks, people walk around a lot, rides bikes, walk dogs. Everybody knows everybody else. Generally friendly, helpful people, environmentally correct when it comes to recycling. However, residents are obsessed with getting the latest mobile phone and spend an enormous amount of time texting, posting in FB, etc. Mostly Christian based but by title/association more than actual church involvement.

Pleasanton is a great community. Not too large so you will get to know your neighbors and people you continually run into, but not too small where you will know everyone's business.
Little to no crime. Some break ins every now and then and some shoplifting, however the dangerous crime is nowhere near.
