UrbanOak is located in the very southernmost part of San Jose, affectionately called the “South Side” by residents. South San Jose is an extremely scenic area framed by rolling hills and home to families who have lived in the area for a long time. The area is popular because it does not have the congested feel of the rest of San Jose and instead has suburban sprawl. This peaceful and family-friendly area used to be covered by orchards, and most residents have lived there for a long while.

South San Jose is home to several neighborhoods – Almaden, Blossom Valley, Santa Teresa, Edenvale, Silver Creek, Evergreen, and Coyote Valley – each with their own unique feel. UrbanOak is located in the Santa Teresa neighborhood.

South San Jose is a breath of fresh air from the busy Central San Jose.

Parks and Amenities

Although it appears mostly quiet and residential, there are plenty of things to do in South San Jose. Groceries and restaurants line the main streets near residential areas, and along Blossom Hill Road there are numerous retail and commercial buildings including the Westfield Oakridge mall with tons of shopping options to satisfy your needs. Additionally, there are dozens of parks in the area, most notably Santa Teresa County Park. The park spans 1,673 acres with 17 miles of unpaved trails for hiking, biking, or equestrian use. There are also picnicking areas and an archery range.

South San Jose is one of the best areas to live in San Jose. Unfortunately the only downside is the commute, but it’s a small price to pay for the beauty and peacefulness of the area!
