Green Gables is comprised of sycamore-lined streets, nestled in peaceful sub-neighborhoods like Duveneck/St. Francis, Embarcadero Oaks, Garland, Leland Manor, and Triple El. If you’re looking for a place that has something for everyone, look no further than this neighborhood.
Residents can explore the Baylands Nature Preserve, or walk, jog, and bike along streets clad with canopies of trees. Enjoy easy access to Rinconada Park and its adjacent pool, or play a round at the nearby Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course. Every December, Fulton Street comes to life in a giant display of lights and decorations, attracting visitors from all over Silicon Valley.
Many homes here boast beautifully landscaped yards and gardens, and often combine Ranch-style architecture with modern upgrades. In recent years, savvy buyers have scooped up teardowns on large lots that are relative bargains compared to expensive neighboring Old Palo Alto. The subsequent building boom has resulted in the addition of several new architectural styles to the neighborhood’s makeup.
Green Gables also enjoys coveted proximity to schools, allowing children to walk or bike to two top-rated elementary schools and a middle school. All in all, the neighborhood is the perfect fit for families looking for a mix of natural beauty, safety, and community resources.
