The people who live in the commune are called Vaucressonais. Vaucresson contains abundant parkland; 22 of its 308 hectares are classed as natural zones. Today Vaucresson is principally a wealthy residential community, and has the ninth-highest household income of any commune in France.
Vaucresson has a movie theatre called "Cinema Normandie". There is also a cultural centre, "La Montgolfiere", which offers many activities and cultural exhibits. The name was given as a reminder of the first hot air balloon which set off from the Chateau de Versailles the 19 September 1783 and landed in Vaucresson, carrying a duck, a rooster and a lamb.
Vaucresson is served by Vaucresson station on the Transilien Paris – Saint-Lazare suburban rail line.
