Welcome to Fremont



Fremont is a city in Alameda County and was incorporated in January 1956, from the annexation of Centerville, Niles, Irvington, Mission San José, and Warm Springs. The city is named after John C. Frémont, an American explorer and former US Senator from California, Governor from Arizona, Major General in the Union Army, and the first Republican presidential candidate, in 1856.

Located in the southeast San Francisco Bay Area and straddling both the East Bay and South Bay regions, Fremont has a rapidly-growing population of around 230,000. It is one of the largest cities by land area and the fourth most populous city in the San Francisco Bay Area, behind San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland.

The city has an extensive and rapidly expanding base of both the tech industry and workers. With its moderate climate and its proximity to major universities, shopping areas, recreation, and cultural activities, employment centers, major airports, and the Bay Area Rapid Transit system, Fremont captures metropolitan living at its best.

Fremont is home to a broad variety of innovative firms including over 1,200 high tech, life science, and clean technology firms. Fremont has a broad range of quality, affordable business locations; a superior workforce; and incentive programs.

Fremont is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse cities in the Bay Area. Residents are attracted to Fremont for its nationally-recognized high-ranking public schools, its numerous well-kept parks, and a variety of recreational amenities, including beautiful Lake Elizabeth, Central Park, and Mission San José (California's 14th mission). Fremont is a wonderful community to live, work, and play.

The area consisting of Fremont and the cities of Newark and Union City (formed from the annexation of Alvarado and Decoto) is known collectively as the Tri-City Area; different from the adjacent Tri-Valley area encompassing Pleasanton, Dublin, and Livermore.

Fremont is ranked No.7 overall in WalletHub’s recent list of the greenest cities in the country.
