"Great Cul-de-Sac Neighborhood"

Just north of the Fairgrounds and south of Foothill High School is the Del Prado neighborhood in Pleasanton. It is another one of these neighborhoods that is packed with newer contemporary styles homes that look like they date from around the 90’s. These are really nice, super clean streets that make you feel completely safe and totally bored all in one big wallop. These aren't million dollar homes but they are definitely upwards of $500 K

Schools are great and you have the usual things you would expect from the burbs—a smattering of restaurants, grocery stores and places to catch a movie and all the usual things.

The Del Prado neighborhood is anchored by Del Prado Park which you can find at its center. (This kind of park centered suburban planning is the rule in Pleasanton.) The real organizing structure of this neighborhood though is the cul-de-sac.
The neighborhood is set up so you get as many of these as possible, which is nice because of the advantages that cul-de-sacs bring—namely that they make for quiet little enclaves where you can let your kids play basketball outside while you and your neighbors watch them from your homes without worrying about some car running them down.

The other nice thing about this neighborhood is the Pleasanton Tennis Park is just to the northeast. It has 10 tennis courts, 2 basketball courts, 2 volleyball courts, and a pretty big children’s paly area.

Schools are strong here as well as throughout Pleasanton and crime is low. This is just a nice boring suburban area, perfect for raising kids. Pretty nice for what it is.
Pros
  • Quiet, Safe Cul-de-Sac
  • Nice Houses
  • Great Schools
Cons
  • A Little Boring
  • Expensive
  • Car/Commuter Center
