Overview

Located just north of Palo Alto and Stanford University, Menlo Park is both a financial center for Silicon Valley and a charming, residential city with a vibrant business district, full of restaurants and shops. Those who live in Menlo Park site the friendliness of the people, the walkable, tree-lined streets, and its central location as reasons why they love the city.

 

Twelve neighborhoods comprise Menlo Park, with houses ranging from modest Eichlers to new, estate-sized homes on large lots. While Menlo Park is one of the more expensive addresses on the Midpeninsula, it is more reasonably priced than neighboring Palo Alto, while offering the same proximity to high-technology companies and world-class dining and shopping.

 

Menlo Park is perhaps best known for Sand Hill Road, a vast stretch of land that is renowned as home to venture capitalists, private equity, financial and law firms. The concentration of power there has caused many to liken Sand Hill Road to the Silicon Valley version of New York City’s Wall Street. Facebook, SRI International, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Sunset Magazine are also located in Menlo Park.

 

Education is a priority for Menlo Park residents and nearly 70% of them hold college degrees. The public school system is well regarded and several fine private schools are located in or around the city.

 

The temperate climate, convenient location, and mix of suburban comfort and urban amenities make Menlo Park a great place to make your home.

The public schools are among the best in the nation. Graduates from the local high schools attend the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country, with a much larger than average number admitted to neighboring Stanford. Abundant bike paths make it easy for most students to bike to their local schools, giving them a sense of independence that is valued by parents and children alike.
