Saratoga remains a desirable community for residents of all ages. Locals are justifiably proud of their city, a pride that they celebrate at several events each year. Ongoing events include the Farmer's Market, the Montalvo Concert Series and the Mountain Winery Concert Series. March brings the Mustard Festival and the Montalvo Easter Sunday Brunch, while the Santa Cruz Mountain Winegrowers Vintner's Festival takes place in June. By far the most popular event on Saratoga's social calendar is Celebrate Saratoga, which occurs each September. Gourmet food, wine, six stages of entertainment and a "Fun Zone" are just a few of the attractions that draw hundreds of visitors each fall.
Saratoga is well known throughout the state for its excellent schools. Elementary and middle school students are served by the Saratoga Union School District. High school students attend one of two public schools in the Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District. Schools in both districts are ranked among the best in the state. For post-secondary education, West Valley College is located in Saratoga. Also within driving distance are Stanford University, Santa Clara University, Cogswell Polytechnical College, San Jose State University, three campuses of the University of California (UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis), and many other excellent colleges and universities.
Saratoga's Parks and Recreation Department maintains a number of parks for the enjoyment of residents. Facilities range in size and scope from 15.5-acre Hakone Gardens, which features bamboo and water-strolling gardens, to the half-acre Saratoga Historical Park, the site of three of the city's historic buildings. Other parks offer tennis courts, barbeque areas, walking paths, playgrounds, basketball and volleyball courts, soccer fields and more.
