Alum Rock

Welcome to Alum Rock

Nestled at the base of the Diablo Range foothills, Alum Rock is a humble, but comfortable residential San Jose neighborhood. It reaches about 1.2 square miles comprised of flat, middle to upper middle-class terrain expanding from Penitencia Creek Road to Story Road. Alum Rock’s residential terrain is divided into micro-neighborhoods. Towards the northern end of the district, there is a sense of polished, upper middle-class aesthetics that escape the rest of the community. Most homes are rather large, two-stories in size and have a two car garage with upstair windows peeking out into the front yards
