The City of Lodi is committed to “quality growth” and strives to protect its historical, small-town charm through an annual growth management program. The city is compact and efficiently designed, with a large stock of classic, vintage homes located within easy walking distance from its historic downtown. Newer developments offer contemporary designs with nearby parks and schools.
Lodi recognizes that the vitality of any city is its core. The city has ensured its vitality by investing over $25 million to revitalize its core downtown area. The investment dividends continue with the attraction of a multiplex cinema, restaurants, specialty shops, and wine tasting rooms. The vibrancy of collaborative efforts by the active (and downtown rooted) Chamber of Commerce, Downtown and Tourism business improvement districts guarantee a steady stream of visitors. The semi-annual Lodi Street Fair brings 30,000 shoppers to each event. Weekly farmers’ markets attract 5,000 customers during the Valley’s balmy summer evenings. Featured are an abundance of locally grown specialty produce and beer and wine crafted by our many award-winning producers. Monthly “Art Hops” draw aficionados to the galleries, bistros, and coffee shops that participate in this new promotional concept.
For residents, as well as a steady stream of visitors, there are plenty of cultural and community events to enjoy. Seize the moment at the Zinfest, Downtown Wine Strolls, Christmas Light Parade, Grape Festival & Harvest Fair, Sand Hill Crane Festival, Wine & Sausage Festival, and many other events occurring throughout the year.
Hutchins Street Square, the City’s performing arts and conference center is home to multiple community programs and events. Its stunning 800-seat theater offers a venue for live entertainment and meetings as does its adjacent outdoor amphitheater and various conference and community rooms.
Sports and recreation are key to Lodi’s quality living commitment. Enhanced by its mild seasonal climate, 28 parks and specific-use facilities covering more than 400 acres, Lodi features a variety of recreational interests and activities for youth and adults. Lodi Lake Park complements the area’s many outdoor recreational venues and the Delta waterway system. Residents also enjoy the benefits of close proximity to the San Francisco Bay Area and the Sierra Nevada Mountains, each just a 90-minute drive away.
Lodi’s established medical community serves over 150,000 - far more than those that reside within its city limits. Lodi Memorial Hospital, established in 1952, is nearing completion of a $160 million remodel project, designed to continue to offer state of the art, quality health care for residents of Lodi and beyond. Lodi is within 45 minutes of the Sacramento International Airport and just over an hour from Oakland International.
