                       P  leasant Hill is a "limited service city", meaning that the city does not
                       receive nor benefit from property taxes collected from residents by the
                       County Tax Assessor, as do other cities in Contra Costa county. Virtu-
                       ally all city revenue comes from sales taxes. This means that large non-
                       retail developments, like multi-story office buildings, have no signifi-
                       cant benefit to the citizens of Pleasant Hill. Therefore, the city is made
                       up primarily of residential and retail development.


Recreational opportunities abound in Pleasant Hill. Using the trail system constructed and
maintained by the East Bay Regional Park District, you can walk the full length of Pleasant
Hill and enjoy scenery from Walnut Creek to beyond Diablo Valley College. The trail system
links most Contra Costa communities.


Nearby Mount Diablo State Park is one of the ecological treasures of the San Francisco Bay
Area. Every season has its special qualities in the park -- beautiful wildflowers, an extensive
trail system, fascinating wildlife and distinctive rock formations. Visitors can view the stars
from its lofty heights, bike ride to its 3,849-foot summit or explore the more remote trails by
horseback.


The Pleasant Hill Recreation and Park District is one of the finest recreation districts in the
state. Pleasant Hill Park is a 16.5-acre facility that has a large swimming pool, children's play
area, sand volley ball courts, sports fields, lighted surfaced court and softball field, and many
picnic and barbecue spots. This park is frequently used for special events. Dinosaur Hill Park
offers hikers breathtaking view of the Ygnacio Valley. This park is a favorite of scenic pho-
tographers.

                             Academic Performance Index

             Academic Performance Index (API) is the state’s method of combining
                       test scores across all subjects and grade levels.

               The API is a numeric scale that ranges from a low 200 to a high of
              1000. The API is a way of comparing schools based on students test
              scores. The index was created in 1998 to help parents and educators
                           better understand how schools were doing.
