Sitting on the edge between Cupertino and Los Altos, the Creston neighborhood is comprised of some homes with Cupertino addresses, and others with Los Altos addresses. A small part of Creston is unincorporated county land, which is governed by, and under the jurisdiction of Santa Clara County.
Despite bordering Interstate 280 and bustling Foothill Boulevard, much of the traffic noise fades away upon entering the neighborhood. Running alongside Stevens Creek, Creston Drive wraps around most of the perimeter of the neighborhood and spawns several cul-de-sacs. Single-family homes appear by Foothill Boulevard, where a green sign sits at the entrance, greeting residents and visitors alike, leading them to street that gradually will take them into a valley occupied with more homes.
For outdoor recreation, residents of Creston often frequent nearby Varian Park, which offers tennis courts, walking trails, and a few playgrounds.
The well-maintained landscape and peaceful ambiance are part of why Crestonians love living in this neighborhood. The streets are wide and well-paved, and lined with pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, forming an idea location for families with children, while still being within easy access of Interstate 280 for a quick commute.
