I have lived in Menlo Park for 25 years & have come to know & love this community. Incidentally, I moved to the Peninsula from San Francisco. As you probaly know, it's a completely different environment (ideal weather etc.). In particular, West Menlo Park is a small established residential district with tree lined streets. The majority of these homes are ranch style that were built in the 1950 - 1960's. & are set on approximately 1/4 acre. Many owners have completely updated these homes or have built new ones. Both the elementary & middle school are within walking distance or a short drive. Older children are able to walk or bike to friends homes as well as our friendly downtown. If you want further informaton, please call me. My cell number is 650 302 2250.
Thanks for your inquiry.
