Living in Concord
As the largest city in Contra Costa County, Concord has much to offer, from housing choices, to shopping and recreational opportunities.
The community welcomes and supports families, from young newlyweds to retired couples, from single parent households to multi-generational family units.
Concord has been recognized as the best place in California to raise a family, awarded Best Music Scene by Livability.com, and has been designated a Tree City USA for 32 consecutive years. The local lifestyle reflects a careful blending of the City's early California heritage with modern development.
This approach has resulted in a harmonious community of quiet neighborhoods, an excellent park system, convenient shopping centers, a modern high-rise business center, large preserves of open space and an exciting downtown business core that radiates from historic Todos Santos Plaza.
