Menlo Park is an old fashioned community, where neighbors know each other, block parties are common, and the kids still play out in the street with their friends. The schools are great, the weather can’t be beat, the downtown is lively and it’s conveniently located between San Francisco and San Jose.
With its close proximity to Stanford University and the Silicon Valley, Menlo Park has always been a popular place to call home. Downtown offers a great farmer’s market on Sundays, music in the park during the summer, and a Block Party during the summer. The community center has Burgess Park which hosts holiday parades and has numerous sporting venues, including a new gymnasium three swimming pools.
The lots are typically a quarter to a third of an acre, but the landscaping throughout the city is lush and city, family friendly.
