An oasis in the Bay Area, Alamo has maintained the County’s General Plan for parcel lots of a one-half acre or more which creates a unique community in the Bay Area — tree-canopied two-lane roads, large lots, generous views of open space, and a distinct downtown with local businesses that cater to local needs. The resident’s priority of tree preservation helped transform this once agricultural area into a true jewel with a population of under 15,000.
Alamo was named by the Spanish in 1850 for the poplar trees that lined San Ramon Creek. Walnut Creek lies to the north, Danville, Dublin, and San Ramon to the south. Las Trampas Regional Wilderness is a 5,342-acre park located to the immediate southwest of the town. The wilderness contains forested hillsides, riparian woods and several secluded waterfalls and offers many recreational opportunities.
