Belmont is a Mid-Peninsula city in California with a population near 27,000. Like many peninsula cities, Belmont has a quiet, small-town ambiance that is perfect for families. This beautiful city has 14 parks, including an off-leash dog park, and 337 acres of open space for running, hiking and biking.
Many of the homes in Belmont are nestled amongst pines and oaks in the various hills and canyons, offering views of local woodlands or the San Francisco Bay. Belmont also offers residential real estate areas with flat lots and single-storied homes, with plenty of room for play, yards and gardens.
Belmont’s excellent public school system includes Carlmont High School and Ralston Middle School, both California Distinguished Schools.

The Van’s Restaurant on Belmont Ave is one of the few remaining buildings from the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, a designation it shares with the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Originally a Japanese Tea House, the building was purchased by local landowner E. D. Swift and brought to Belmont on a barge when the exposition closed in 1915.
