About Los Gatos, California

Located at the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Los Gatos is a city situated between Monte Sereno and San Jose. It was incorporated on August 10, 1952 and is Spanish for “the cats.”

Los Gatos has seen several industries flow through the city limits including logging, rail transportation and even oil drilling. But today the city is influenced by neighboring Silicon Valley and has many high tech companies calling it home, most notably Netflix.

Outdoor activities are abundant in Los Gatos and include such destinations as La Rinconada Country Club, Los Gatos Creek Trail, Heintz Open Space and Vasona Park. In addition to the traditional recreation activities you’ll find at Vasona Park, patrons can experience the Fantasy of Lights during the holiday season. The Fantasy of Lights transforms the park into a winter wonderland with a light display that is unequalled in the Bay Area.
