Idyllic Environment Define Lafayette, Moraga & Orinda
Located just east of Oakland through the Caldecott Tunnel, Orinda is a peaceful, quiet and family friendly community that claims the natural beauty of tree clad hillsides, nationally recognized schools, a strong cultural base and lovely neighborhoods. Children attend the Orinda Elementary School District and then move up to Miramonte High School in the Acalanes High School District. Test scores are some of the highest in the state and bond measures in recent years have upgraded, renovated and expanded schools in the district. Orinda offers easy access to parks and recreational facilities. Tilden Park, one of the largest regional parks in the area, borders Orinda. Here one can find vast trails, a merry go round, ball fields, lake, a golf course, and botanical gardens. The nationally acclaimed Shakespearean festival and theater and the Orinda Film Festival attract visitors annually.
