We like to say that Lathrop is a small city with a big impact. As one of the fastest-growing communities in California, Lathrop offers its residents a cozy, rural feel while maintaining close proximity to many other major cities in California — perfect for commuters. Read on to find out exactly why we love Lathrop so much.
Great For Families
Because it is such a small, tight-knit community, Lathrop is the perfect place to raise a family. Parents can relax knowing the neighborhoods are safe and quiet, with plenty of public parks for kids to play in. Stanford Crossing itself offers several newly built public parks full of beautiful greenery and places to picnic, take a stroll or hang out by the playground. For the older kids, there’s even a skate park. Along the west side of the community is the San Joaquin River, a lovely spot for boating, fishing or birdwatching.
Lathrop also has you covered when it comes to education. With 11 different schools — some private, some public — you have plenty of options to suit your children’s needs, no matter what kind of education you want for them. And, at Stanford Crossing, there are some great choices steps beyond your door: Lathrop High School is within walking distance from any Stanford Crossing home, and Lathrop Elementary is only two miles away.
The Easiest Commute
Centrally located between Tracy, Manteca, Stockton, Lodi, Modesto, Livermore and Pleasanton — and with San Francisco and Sacramento both only an hour away — Lathrop is a prime choice for those looking to live somewhere a little less hectic while working in one of the larger surrounding cities. Conveniently, Stanford Crossing sits minutes from I-5, allowing for an easy commute in any direction. Lathrop’s small-town, peaceful nature is a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle of working in a more congested city. Not to worry — with plenty of restaurants, bars and fun local events, you’ll easily be able to find something to do any time of the week.
Lathrop possesses a neighborly charm unlike anywhere else. Most residents here own their homes outright, which means once you settle here, you’re sure to get to know your neighbors. Communities such as Stanford Crossing are constantly growing, providing new, modern homes for any family looking to move somewhere safe, suburban and charming. Purchasing a home here allows you to take full advantage of the thriving sense of community that exists in Lathrop.
