This is a great neighborhood with friendly people and a park nearby. I'd live here again, although it's less save at night by the 7-11 a few blocks over. Overall, this is a great neighborhood to grow up in. In the future I don't see this area changing much, other than younger families moving in.

My husband and I lived in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose, CA for almost 10 years, and we loved it! The best thing about Willow Glen is it's small town feel. We had the opportunity to get to know and become good friends with many of our neighbors. During our stay in Willow Glen, many small businesses openned and thrived in the Downtown area, which was wonderful to see! My husband and I also loved the the fact that Willow Glen is a very dog-friendly neighborhood! We were able to take our dog to many stores and restaurants, and it seemed that every neighbor welcomed her with open arms! Now, the only reason why I do not give Willow Glen a "best" rating is because the crime in the area is starting to increase, which is such a shame! But, overall, I would have to say that Willow Glen is definitely a neighborhood that I am going to miss!
