Templeton is nearly at the halfway mark between Los Angeles and San Francisco. It is a small quiet town with a strong community spirit and a vision to preserve its colorful past. It is one of three unincorporated areas in San Luis Obispo County that has land available for development. Our community has a current population of 7,500 with an estimated build-out by 2030 with a population of 15,000.
Templeton is recognized for its open space, friendly lifestyle, a local farmer's market, and award winning wineries. Our old-town neighborhoods blend well with new homes to create an excellent residential atmosphere, served by a school district with all sites accredited as "California Distinguished Schools", three area parks and numerous churches. Our small community provides the basic necessities: a regional hospital, medical centers, a new Trader Joe's shopping center, award winning restaurants, and a variety of service clubs and activities.
