Welcome to Danville
Often referred to as the “Heart of the San Ramon Valley, the Town of Danville is in Contra Costa County. Since 2018, four years in a row, Danville has been voted “the safest town in California.” It is one of the few incorporated municipalities in California that uses “town” in its name instead of “city”. With a population of approximately 44,000 and a charming downtown with unique shops and many locally owned businesses, Danville appeals to many in search of the perfect place to call home. The town is famous for its July 4th parade and hosts a farmers’ market each Saturday next to the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, located in the historic Southern Pacific Railroad Train Depot. The Iron Horse Regional Trail runs through Danville. It was first a railroad that has been converted to an 80-foot-wide corridor of bike and hiking trails that extend from Pleasanton to Concord. Danville is also home to the Village Theatre and Art Gallery, hosting children’s theatre, shows, and art discussions. The most prominent landmark of this wonderful town is the backdrop of Mt. Diablo with the Las Trampas Ridge to the west and the Diablo Range to the west.
