Willow Glen is a neighborhood of San Jose in Santa Clara County. Formerly its own municipality, the community was annexed by San Jose in 1936 and it remains relatively independent with a suburban feel. The neighborhood has walkable tree-lined streets, diverse architecture, specialty shops, and independent businesses. The historic downtown on Lincoln Avenue between Willow Street and Minnesota Avenue is a well-known destination, with a variety of restaurants and shops. Annual street festivals take place several times throughout the year.

Today, Willow Glen continues to experience high property valuation and it is considered one of the most desirable residential neighborhoods in San Jose.  Willow Glen neighborhoods are almost exclusively composed of custom or semi-custom homes in a diverse range of architectural styles. Many architect-commissioned houses can be seen in the neighborhood, including Victorian, Neoclassical (Queen Anne Cottage and Neocolonial), Colonial Revival, Craftsman, Mission, Prairie, Spanish Eclectic, Eicher, and Tudor. In recent years many smaller houses have been replaced with larger houses.
