The overall atmosphere feels safe. I can easily walk down the street without feeling threatened. It’s very clean, with plenty of places to walk/play with my dogs. I have extremely easy access to grocery stores, shopping centers, and restaraunts. Everything is literally within 2 to 7 minutes away From me! Even better, I’m located right across the street from a hospital. Which for me, gives me an extra added reassurance of security and convenience. I’m also only so close to the BART station, I could walk and not have to worry about paying for parking. I recently moved to Pleasanton, but so far my daily life tasks have been made so easy due all of the accommodations I’ve listed!

Pleasanton is one of those towns where you can just walk down the streets of downtown and automatically gain a sense of satisfaction. Pleasanton is a family orientated town which puts on many social events to bring the community together. If I could change one thing it would defiantly be to add more parking structures/lots. With the increasing population, it makes it very difficult to find parking these days!
Pleasanton is a small, little town of coziness that simply makes you dream of simpler times. Plenty of parking, and the public buildings are simply lovely! The resident's helpfulness devotion to cleanliness was limitless.
