Alum Rock

Alum Rock is in the East foothills of Santa Clara County and is adjacent to one of the older and established country club locations. As a gateway to Alum Rock Park and Mt. Hamilton, Alum Rock is home to and is a modest, but comfortable residential San Jose neighborhood. It spans about 1.2 square miles of flat, middle to upper middle-class terrain stretching from Penitencia Creek Road to Story Road (north to south). Alum Rock Park borders this area and is one of California's oldest municipal parks. Located within the Alum Rock Canyon, the park's 740 acres of natural, rugged, beauty provide visitors with many leisure outdoor activities including, hiking, jogging, bicycling and picnicking. Due to it's proximity to rural, natural lands, the park is home to many wild animals including mountain lions, bobcats, deer and a number of other smaller animals.Alum Rock's residential terrain is almost split into micro-neighborhoods. Towards the northern end of the district, there is a sense of polished, upper middle-class aesthetics that escape the rest of the community. Towards the center of the neighborhood, homes are usually of the modest, single-story ranch home style.For young families, parents usually send their children to James Lick High School or Independence High School, both of which are managed under the umbrella of the East Side Union High School District. For commuters, Alum Rock is situated right next to Highway 680.
