The City of Concord

Historical Landmark
Concord, CA is located about 30 miles east of San Francisco and is adjacent to the beautiful Mt. Diablo. As the largest city in Contra Costa County, Concord has approximately 122,067 residents and covers 31 square miles. Concord provides ready access to San Francisco, Napa Valley, Silicon Valley, San Jose, Oakland and Sacramento. This convenient, central location, along with a temperate climate, allows residents to enjoy a wide variety of unique and scenic attractions within the immediate Bay Area as well as throughout Northern California. Concord has been recognized as the best place in California to raise a family, awarded Best Music Scene by Livability.com, and has been designated a Tree City USA for 32 consecutive years. The local lifestyle reflects a careful blending of the City’s early California heritage with modern development. This approach has resulted in a harmonious community of quiet neighborhoods, an excellent park system, convenient shopping centers, a modern high-rise business center, large preserves of open space and an exciting downtown business core that radiates from historic Todos Santos Plaza. Founded in 1869 as the community of Todos Santos by Salvio Pacheco, it contained 20 acres divided into 19 blocks and a plaza. The center of the community, the plaza was bounded by the present day streets of Willow Pass, Grant, Mt. Diablo, and Salvio. Dedicated by Salvio Pacheco to the people of Todos Santos to be used as a park, it became the focus of the city’s entertainment and business district. Even though the city name changes within months, it was suggested that the plaza be officially called Todos Santos Plaza, commemorating Concord’s original name.

Mount Diablo State Park

Park
13 mi. away
Mount Diablo State park is one of the ecological treasures of the San Francisco Bay Area. Discover for yourself the mountain’s beautiful wildflowers, its extensive trail system, fascinating wildlife and distinctive rock formations. View the stars from its lofty heights, bike ride to its 3,849 foot summit, Mount Diablo, or explore the more remote trails by horseback. The park offers hiking, biking, horseback riding and camping. Geographers claim that hikers can see more of the earth’s surface from the top of Mount Diablo than from any other peak in the world with only one exception: Africa’s legendary 19,340-foot Mt. Kilimanjaro. The far-reaching panorama from Mount Diablo is all the more impressive considering the mountain’s relatively short height. Two reasons for the grand views: (1) the mountain rises solo very abruptly from its surroundings, and (2) the land surrounding the mountain—the San Franciso Bay and Central Valley—is nearly flat.
