San Ramon is bordered to the north by Danville, California, and to the south by Dublin, California. To the east and west, unincorporated county lands border San Ramon. It's about 500 feet (150 meters) above sea level. Mount Diablo, which is visible from almost every part of the city, flanks the city to the northeast. At the northern end of Bollinger Canyon, the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness borders San Ramon's extreme northwest. One of the places you can visit here is Bollinger Canyon Fountain.

Water fountains can bring a lot of character to a landscape, and there's something about flowing water that gives you a feeling of peace and calm. Lots of great water features can be found in newer neighborhoods to add to the curb appeal of a home and neighborhood.

On Bollinger Canyon in San Ramon, in the Gale Ranch neighborhood, there is a water fountain. While it is not a new city, it is less than 20 years old, so there is attractive landscaping and features like this fountain. Cars can park in a quiet little inset off the busy street while you take pictures.

The sound of the flowing water fountain and the cute little spot for taking pictures make you feel comfortable and in contact with nature. It's a beautiful fountain, and it's a popular photo spot, but parking is tight. It's fun to meet with family and take some nice photos. Most people dress up and come here to take pictures.

This is a perfect location for staged portraits of bridal parties, graduation photos, and family photos because of the stunning and picturesque outdoor fountains and tiny surrounding nature areas.

A fountain is a piece of architecture that pours water into a basin or jets it into the air to provide drinking water and/or for a decorative or dramatic effect. Fountains were originally purely functional, connected to springs or aqueducts, and used to provide residents of cities, towns, and villages with drinking water as well as water for bathing and washing.


Today, fountains are used to decorate city parks and squares, to honor people or events, and to provide recreation and entertainment. In the summer, city residents can reach a splash pad or spray pool to get wet and cool off.
