Pleasanton’s Alviso Adobe Community Park is a historic site depicting how people have lived in the area since 3,420 B.C. Original remnants of each historical period have been left intact, allowing visitors and school children to get a glimpse into the past as they learn about the history of the Amador Valley. Join us for an orientation to the site, tours of the adobe, a presentation about life on the dairy, brick making, woodcarving and a photo opportunity on one of the last pristine pieces of the original Highway 21 to commemorate your journey to the past.
