Life in Piedmont

Piedmont primarily contains single-family homes, with few businesses or apartment complexes. Its commercial district runs along Highland Avenue and Grand Avenue, close to the Oakland border. Shops, businesses, restaurants and nightlife are only a few blocks away, but they're technically in the surrounding community of Oakland.

Piedmont itself does have a Community Hall and Veterans' Memorial Building. There are many pretty parks on its tree-lined streets, such as Piedmont Park, Dracena Park, Crocker Park and Kennelly Skate Park. Want to play games? There are plenty of playing fields too, including Coaches, Havens and Piedmont Sports Field.

History of Homes

This community of homes was first incorporated in 1907. It was a narrow decision to make Piedmont a town rather than merely a neighborhood within Oakland.

Residents originally sought incorporation in 1907. Two elections were held among the citizens of Piedmont in 1907, both of which narrowly upheld the decision for Piedmont to become a separate city, rather than become a neighborhood within the city of Oakland. Its status as a charter city came about in 1922.

The town celebrates homey holidays, including a July 4th parade and a recent centennial anniversary. Residents enjoy services such as public libraries and post office facilities in Oakland.

Famous Names

Author Jack London wrote the classic Call of the Wild while living on Blair Avenue, and the house still stands! Clint Eastwood and rocker Country Joe McDonald also lived here.
