Central Park/Woodside Plaza
Renowned Weather, Hiking Trails, and Rich Heritage
Redwood City’s location in the heart of the peninsula is an excellent location for working in Silicon Valley and San Francisco. Within close proximity to Atherton, Woodside and Stanford, the downtown is currently undergoing a major renaissance with a new movie theatre and shopping complex recently completed, as well as a new Whole Foods. The town is the county seat with courthouses and an array of county services, and has the only deepwater port on San Francisco Bay south of The City itself. The neighborhood of Redwood Shores is part of Redwood City, although it is not possible to travel by road from one to the other without passing through the neighboring city of San Carlos.
The outdoor enthusiast has plenty to be excited about with what a day of adventure can yield; Edgewood Park’s serpentine grasslands offers relaxing vistas with miles of hiking and equestrian trails, and Redwood Shores has delightful waterways and paved walking trails. The Mount Carmel and Emerald Lake Hills (in unincorporated SM County) neighborhoods reflect the area’s rich cultural heritage with well designed, distinct homes and large wooded, private lots.
Canada Community College, just off 280, is within striking distance of many peninsula homes.
