Ray Park is one of two neighborhoods (the other is Burlingame Village) that were developed during and immediately after World War II on the former Darius Ogden Mills Estate. The wealthy San Francisco industrialist Milton S. Ray developed Ray Park and gave the area his name. An avid ornithologist as well as an avid history buff, Mr. Ray named the streets in his development after explorers: Coronado, Marco Polo, and Quesada. Today, a clipper ship marks the entrance to Ray Drive at El Camino Real. Perhaps, the ship is a nod to the Bay Area company that Mr. Ray’s father founded in 1872: The Ray Burner Co. manufactured oil burners for ships. The area is within walking distance to the shops in Burlingame Plaza, the new Mills-Peninsula Hospital and the city’s one public intermediate school.
Ray Park is a picturesque rolling neighborhood located in North Burlingame. Most of the homes are one level ranch-style homes with a great deal of curb appeal, and are “newer” than homes in most other historic neighborhoods in Burlingame. Ray Park is walking distance to both top-rated Lincoln Elementary and Franklin Elementary Schools, as well as Burlingame’s only public middle school, Burlingame Intermediate School. The neighborhood is just minutes away from the southernmost BART stop (about a half hour direct to downtown San Francisco), the Millbrae exit at 101, and just down the hill from the 280 corridor, making it a convenient jumping off point for those who commute to Silicon Valley. It is also very close to the shopping center on the corner of Trousdale and El Camino which is home to Lunardi Foods, and the brand new Mills Peninsula Hospital just across the street, which opened in 2011. The $680 million hospital is arguably the most state-of-the-art in all of California
