Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Brentwood located?

Brentwood is tucked away in Contra Costa County, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area's East Bay neighborhood. Brentwood's skyline is adorned by the recognizable Mount Diablo, which is a frequent sight in many Contra Costa County cities in the East Bay. The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta's lush alluvial plain is where this city is located. Brentwood is a part of the East Bay Regional Park District, a distinctive area of the San Francisco Bay Area that includes Alameda and Contra Costa Counties and provides residents and visitors with a variety of parks and beautiful trails to explore.

What is the average climate in Brentwood?

The Mediterranean (Csa) and semi-arid (Bsh) climates are on each side of Brentwood. Brentwood experiences less rainfall than many of its neighbors since it is located in the rain shadow of Mt. Diablo, like most of East Contra Costa County. The rainy season typically lasts from October to April, though there can be one or two days of mild rain in June or September. The Delta breeze frequently reduces the intensity of the summer heat, especially in the late afternoon, causing temperatures to drop quickly.

What are the educational opportunities in Brentwood?

The Brentwood Union School District, Knightsen School District, and Liberty Union High School District are in charge of the city's public education system, which consists of 7 elementary, 3 middle, and 4 high schools. One of the best high schools in the area is Heritage High School, which also happens to be solar-powered and offers a variety of AP classes. A new 18-acre campus for Los Medanos College is being built in Brentwood, and it will debut in 2020. Recently, a 20,000 square foot building with a variety of collections, language services, and programming for all ages was given to the city's public library.

How is the economy in Brentwood?

The economy of Brentwood, which was formerly based on agricultural, has transitioned toward suburban life. Despite the continued presence of agriculture, regional vineyards like Bloomfield, Tamayo, and Hannah Nicole have become well known. The population of the city increased significantly between 2000 and 2008, rising from 23,302 to almost 48,000, with new neighborhoods frequently built around golf courses. Brentwood experienced prosperous new communities like Carmel Estates and Trilogy at the Vineyards despite a recession in 2009. The economy recovered in 2013, thanks in large part to more construction. Top employers in the community include the Brentwood Union School District, the community of Brentwood, and the Liberty Union High School District. The city's revival has been aided by proximity to research centers like the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and better regional conditions.

How is the transportation in Brentwood?

Insufficient public transportation causes traffic congestion in Brentwood. The John Marsh Heritage Highway links the city to Antioch, while State Route 4 and the Byron Highway provide access to the city. Express and local bus services are provided by Tri Delta Transit. Hillcrest Avenue now has access to eBart's light rail as of 2018. Brentwood doesn't have a passenger rail system, but Amtrak and the Altamont Corridor Express both serve surrounding regions from Antioch. An idle freight rail route will be restarted by Union Pacific Railroad. Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, and Stockton International Airports are commercial airports, while Byron Airport, Livermore Municipal Airport, and Concord (Buchanan Field) are available for private aviation.

What are some popular attractions in Brentwood?

With its Wellness Policy, several parks, and jogging routes, Brentwood—a Playful City USA—promotes an active way of life. The Brentwood Art Society and the Brentwood Theater Company both host events in the community, which supports the arts. A significant art gallery is also located in the Streets of Brentwood shopping complex. The East Contra Costa Historical Society and Museum, Los Vaqueros Reservoir, and Marsh Creek Regional Trail are just a few of the attractions in the 72 city parks that the Brentwood Parks and Recreation Department looks after. Local brewers and vintners are featured at the yearly Art, Wine, and Jazz Festival. Along the "Harvest Time" farm tour route, local farms provide vegetable stalls and "U-Pick" opportunities, while downtown Brentwood is home to a thriving farmers' market every Saturday morning.
