Just east of Highway 101 and tucked up into San Jose's east foothills
is the beautiful neighborhood of Evergreen. One of the most culturally
and ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the City of San Jose, this area
includes not only many older, established homes but also some of the
City's newest and most prestigious.
More than 50 years ago, this area was mostly black walnut orchards.
Today, however, you'll find a pleasant mix of retail stores, offices,
community facilities and single and multi-family residences. Shopping
in the Evergreen area is delightful. Not only is the area host to
Eastridge Mall, but there are also many ethnic grocery stores and
Residents of the Evergreen area enjoy many unique recreational
opportunities. Home to Raging Waters, Santa Clara County's huge water
park, Evergreen also encompasses many parks including Lake Cunningham
Park, Windmill Springs Park and Groesbeck Park. Golfers enjoy access to
Pleasant Hills Golf Course. High atop the hills of Evergreen rests
Silver Creek Country Club, a master planned community that houses some
of the most prestigious estates in the area. Here you'll find a private
golf and country club that is behind a private, guarded gate. Ted
Robinson designed the championship 18 hole, park 72 golf course. There
is also a gorgeous clubhouse, racquet club and swim pavilion.
Students in the area are served by the Evergreen School District.
One of the fastest growing districts in the Bay Area, the Evergreen
School District has as its motto "Commitment to Excellence." This
commitment is evident in the district's Fifteen California
Distinguished Schools and nine National Blue Ribbon Schools. Higher
education is also available in the area through Evergreen Valley
