Fremont

Forward-thinking approach to advanced manufacturing, robotics, and automation.

Welcome to Fremont

Fremont is located in Alameda County, in the south eastern San Francisco Bay Area. The fourth most populous city in the Bay Area, and California’s 15th largest city overall, Fremont boasts pride of location as it is equidistant between major Bay Area Metros San Jose and Oakland, with San Francisco only a short distance further across the San Francisco Bay. Fremont also shares ready access to its famous neighbor to the south: The Silicon Valley.
 
Fremont has a long history as being a hub for manufacturing, and is due much of the credit for its region being termed “the hardware side of the Bay.” Fremont’s forward-thinking approach to advanced manufacturing, robotics, and automation keeps it a relevant and dynamic supporter of these vital industries. Many of Fremont’s twelve-hundred plus innovation firms take advantage of the ability to locally design and build their tech, life science, and clean technology business products. Companies like TeslaLAM Research Corporation, and Boston Scientific are among the top employers of Fremont’s superior workforce.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

In October of 2019, Fremont broke ground on its Downtown Event Center and Plaza – the first phase of its downtown development plan. Envisioned as a city and privately-owned mixed-use space for housing, retail, and businesses, with an overlying focus on providing spaces for community gatherings. This site is bounded by Paseo Padre Parkway to the North, Fremont Boulevard to the south, Walnut Avenue to the East and Mowry Avenue to the West.
Each Friday from May through October, Fremont Street Eats hosts the best food truck event in the Bay Area. Partnering with Food Truck Mafia, visitors can indulge in a diverse mix of culinary treats. Sophisticated palates are satisfied at destinations like Massimo’s (a Fremont landmark since 1976) where great steak, seafood, and pasta are served with the utmost attention to quality. Imagination is the only limit when constructing custom burgers at The Counter.
In a city as large as Fremont, locally owned coffee shops are as numerous as the better known, popular chains such as Starbuck’s, Peet’s, and Philz. A few spots worth trying include: Slap Face Coffee & Tea, Suju’s Coffee & TeaFremont Coffee Company, and Café 4. Boba and bubble and teas are also readily available at highly rated shops: Factory Tea Bar99% Tea House, and One Tea.

Things to Do

Fremont is a wonderful community to work, live and play. Many cultural events throughout the year highlight its ethnic diversity, and bring residents and visitors together to explore and celebrate. On July, Fremont hosts its 4th of July parade where spectators enjoy floats, marching bands, and celebrity guests. The first weekend in August, the largest street festival takes place west of the Mississippi River: The Fremont Festival of the Arts. This premier art, wine, and music festival has activities and entertainment for the entire family including over five hundred art and craft booths, a gourmet marketplace, kid-friendly performances, rides, games, demonstrations, and two stages with live music.

The Festival of India Parade is traditionally held the third weekend in August, and showcases culture, creativity, and traditions. Step away from the bustle of downtown Fremont and visit the quieter Niles Canyon section of the city. Niles Canyon is the first home of California’s motion picture industry, and holds onto its historic roots. Many antique shops, Tyme for Tea Victorian tea shop, casual eateries, the Niles Canyon Railway Train depot and museum, and the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum line a tranquil 4 block section of Niles Boulevard. The Christmas holidays are celebrated here with the popular Niles Canyon Train of Lights, and Niles Canyon Festival of Lights Parade in December.

History is alive at the many historical sites maintained throughout Fremont. The California Nursery Historical Park spans back to 1862, Ardenwood Historic Farm glimpses life on a working farm at the turn of the nineteenth century, and Mission San Jose highlights its founding in 1797 through to its reconstruction in 1985.

Fremont Skate Park – designed by nationally acclaimed skate park designer Wormhoudt, Inc. – is also a part of the Central Park complex.

Fremont provides venues for outdoor gathering and activities via its thirty-four community parks and playgrounds. Central Park – set on over four hundred and fifty acres, including eighty-plus acre Lake Elizabeth – offers a variety of activities including: a two-mile pedway around the lake, picnic sites, children’s play areas, basketball, tennis, fishing, seasonal waterpark, and boat rentals/launches/storage. 

Connect with the greater outdoors by venturing to Mission Peak. Follow one of the trails from Ohlone College and find magnificent views of the San Francisco Peninsula. Don Edwards National Wildlife RefugeQuarry Lakes Regional Recreation AreaShinn Park Arboretum, and Coyote Hills Regional Park also afford first-hand experiences with regional wildlife, wildflowers, and sweeping vistas of the surrounding hillsides and valleys.

Schools

Fremont public schools are served by the Fremont Unified School District. In 2019 William Hopkins Junior High, Mission San Jose High, John F Kennedy High and American High received California Distinguished School Awards from the California Department of Education. California School for the Deaf and California School for the Blind share a campus in Fremont and serve all of Northern California. Ohlone Community College is also found within Fremont.
