Almaden Valley

Welcome to Almaden Valley

Almaden Valley is one of Silicon Valley’s most attractive residential areas located near the rolling hillsides of South San Jose. “One of the most gorgeous landscapes in America,” the Greenbelt Alliance calls the Almaden Valley, most of which falls into the 95120 zip code and is incorporated into the City of San Jose. Local attractions include the Almaden Quicksilver County Park, which contains remnants of a historic mercury mine that produced more than $75 million in mineral wealth from the Gold Rush era to the 1970s and is now a popular hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trail.

With its ideal climate, highly regarded schools and quiet neighborhoods, Almaden Valley represents an opportunity to experience the classic Northern California lifestyle.
