With its lush, wooded hills, vast stretches of open space, and striking views of San Francisco Bay, the City of Belmont is one of the most desirable communities in San Mateo County. This tranquil, affluent, and diverse residential community of approximately 28,330 people is situated halfway between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of the culturally and technologically rich Bay Area.
