A uniquely charming neighborhood of San Jose, Willow Glen was annexed in 1936, and today is an area steeped in history and tradition. Its lush tree-lined streets are accentuated with distinctive Victorian and Spanish-style single-family homes built in the early 20th Century.
A pedestrian-friendly downtown with sidewalk cafes, coffee shops and vintage stores, is a dog friendly environment. Willow Glen has a unique Christmas tree tradition – known as the “Charlie Brown Trees,” residents of the neighborhood place small leaner trees on their front lawns adorned with multi-colored lights that create a sense of beauty and unity. This quiet, enjoyable neighborhood comes alive with festivals and events that include live music and community dance performances, making Willow Glen is a great place to call home.
