Danville: Residents

Welcome! As a Danville resident, we’ve put together this section so you can find resources and services easily.

Danville is incorporated as a town and its citizens elect a five-member Town Council. The Town Council is responsible for town business, including the passage of ordinances, policies and crafting civic and community plans for the town of Danville. For permits such as tree removal, and building and development the town public departments are the best places to start.

The town of Danville public offices have information on voting and areas where you can report an issue to the police. The town’s community directory has tips on living here along with information on child care, housing, traffic, transportation, utilities, and going green.

Emergency services in Danville are among the best in the area. The police department and the fire department are available for information, additional safety services, and tours. As always in the case of an emergency, please dial 911 to report your issue.

Access to health and safety are one of the most important concerns for residents. Starting with mosquito and vector control, Contra Costa County offers services for controlling vectors such as mosquitoes, mosquito fish, rats, mice, skunks, ticks, yellow jackets, and Africanized honey bees.

There are three full-service local hospitals that serve Danville. These are:

San Ramon Regional Medical Center

John Muir Medical Center

Kaiser Permanente Walnut Creek Medical Center

Danville’s schools are run and managed by the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. Danville schools rank as some of the best in California with academic and all-round excellence a focus for all the schools. There are 35 schools in the neighboring areas of Danville. In addition, parents can choose a private school for a different educational experience for their child.

The town has many lovely parks that are ideal for children to play in. The parks range from small neighborhood spaces to large areas with trails for hiking and biking. The sports fields at the parks are also available for games and practices.

There are two community centers in Danville: Danville Community Center and Oak Hill Park Community Center. There are recreational programs for children under 5 years old all the way through to high school-aged kids. Some fun events for young children organized by the Community Center are Children’s Fallfest, Elf Workshop, Santa’s Mailbox, and Eggstravaganza. The programs offered are sports camps and classes also for all ages. Teens can participate at the middle or high school programs as appropriate, and join camps during the summer. 

There also are recreation programs at the Community Centers for adults that cover special interests, health and fitness, sports, and fun outings and workshops. Seniors can take part in the Senior Hikes, Senior Softball, Senior Sneaker Trips, and volunteer programs.

Danville has access to many public facilities. In addition, the town is part of the dynamic Tri-Valley area in the Bay Area and near cultural and artistic hubs such as San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland. As a result Danville attracts local and international talent to its performing centers.
