Ventura

Overview

Located in the southern portion of Palo Alto, Ventura adjoins Barron Park and borrows from its neighbor’s laid-back nature. However, single-family homes in this neighborhood occupy lots generally smaller than Palo Alto’s average lot size. This factor contributes to a more compact environment, preventing Ventura from experiencing the high demand developers have demonstrated in other parts of the city. Nevertheless, the neighborhood’s central location, relatively low prices, and access to some of the highest-ranking schools in the state make Ventura an increasingly popular option for new residents.

 

The residents of Ventura are a vibrant bunch. Historically, people living in this neighborhood are not heavily affiliated with the tech sector. Many are artists and tradespeople, and all represent an array of ethnicities and cultures. High walkability is a feature that lures many homebuyers; Boulware Park, Equinox Fitness, Starbucks, and numerous restaurants are located within Ventura, while extensive shopping and dining options and the Farmers’ Market at California Avenue are a few blocks outside the neighborhood.

 

A number of businesses, including Fry’s Electronics, dominate the northern part of Ventura. Much of this commercial zone is the subject of a large development plan, which is expected to be defined in the coming months.

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Ease of access and high walkability
  • Relatively affordable option for young families
  • Home of ethnic groups, artists, and tradespeople
  • Development plan intended for northern portion
