In addition, Mill Valley offers a mild Mediterranean climate and one of the top public school districts in the state.

Mill Valley is surrounded by hundreds of acres of park lands. In addition, there are many municipally maintained open-space reserves, parks, and coastal habitats which, when taken together, ensconce the city of Mill Valley in a natural wilderness. This close and constant proximity to nature has left generations of Mill Valley residents with a strong sense of conservancy toward much of this natural environment.
