At a Glance
Incorporated in 1907, the City of Piedmont is completely surrounded by the City of Oakland. But thanks in no small part to the fact that the city boasts its own mayor, city council, fire department, police department, and school district, Piedmont has maintained its unique identity for more than a century.
Originally a weekend destination for visitors to Piedmont Springs (which was part of the Rancho San Antonio Tract), Piedmont soon became a haven for artists and bohemians.
Today, the city is home to over 11,000 residents who are drawn to its tree-lined streets, top-rated schools, small-town atmosphere, and close proximity to downtown San Francisco.
