Welcome to Pleasant Hill
Pleasant Hill is a small suburban community of about 30,000 people, bordered by Lafayette to the west, Walnut Creek to the south, Concord to the east, and Martinez to the north (approximately). Pleasant Hill is the home of Diablo Valley College (DVC), one of the highest rated community colleges in the State and a major feeder-school for Cal Berkeley. Adjacent to the College is College Park High School, which serves most of Pleasant Hill, significant portions of Martinez and Walnut Creek, along with a few Lafayette neighborhoods. Pleasant Hill elementary and middle schools are well regarded. There is a nine-hole public golf course and the popular Contra Costa Country Club. Pleasant Hill has the largest public library in the county and a recently remodeled YMCA. The new downtown features a modern theater complex, many restaurants, and a myriad of large and small stores, with reasonable parking.
