To the casual visitor, Piedmont Pines might appear to be part of Montclair or, even more vaguely, the Oakland Hills. Hilly and wooded, it is certainly part of Oakland, but residents and neighbors will quickly point out that Piedmont Pines is a very specific and well-defined neighborhood.
The Piedmont Pines Neighborhood Association has been active since 1941. Membership is limited 1,350 homes, and it is voluntary. Most of the area is separated from Montclair on the north by the Shepherd Canyon and Girvin Drive. Clear boundaries are marked to the west and south by Highway 13 and the huge expanse of Joaquin Miller Park. Served by the commercial district in Montclair Village, Piedmont Pines real estate consists exclusively of single family homes. The residents are proud of their community accomplishments like getting the utilities put underground, saving open space areas, enacting a view protection ordinance, and improving their local schools.
