Brisbane

San Mateo County/Silicon Valley

Brisbane is also home to the San Bruno Mountain as well as numbers of city parks. San Bruno Mountain is known for its views of San Francisco, and the native Mission Blue butterfly. City parks in Brisbane include the Community Park in the center of town, the Fire Hydrant Plug Reserve and Firth Park, in addition to The Brisbane Dog Park.

Brisbane is called “The City of Stars” because of a holiday tradition established over 65 years ago. At the start of the Christmas/Hanukkah season, many residents and business owners place large, illuminated stars on the “downhill” sides of homes and offices. Many of the stars are kept up all year.
