The Neighborhood –
The Circles, South Palo Alto
Walk to Palo Alto’s top-rated schools, Caltrain stations (California and San Antonio), nearby Mitchel Park, Magic Bridge Playground, Mitchell Park Library, Cubberly Community Center and conveniently located nearby shopping at the Villages at San Antonio Center and California Avenue.
The South Palo Alto area is a catch-all for the various neighborhoods built east of El Camino and South of Oregon Expressway (with the exception of Midtown) in the early to mid 1950’s. A mix of early 50’s ranchers gave way to mid-century Eichlers as the last part of Palo Alto was developed. Each neighborhood has its own unique flavor and home styles.
Palo Alto, CA
Palo Alto is one of the world’s great centers for technology and innovation. Whether it’s venture capital, computers, telecommunications, social networking, or biotech, Palo Alto is the engine that turns ideas into reality. Located halfway between San Francisco and San Jose, Palo Alto is the place in Silicon Valley where everything seems to happen. Unlike their more suburban neighbors, Palo Alto residents enjoy the opportunity to stay connected to the pulse, while still maintaining a sense of seclusion and privacy.
As a hub of innovation, Palo Alto has a gravity that naturally draws influential people and ideas to its center. Even those who live outside the city’s borders are drawn to its myriad restaurants and bars as meeting places for business and socializing. With Palo Alto’s low-key, accessible attitude, you never know who you might run into or what connections you will make here.
In keeping with its foundation as a center for learning and innovation, the city is home to Stanford University as well as some of the most highly regarded public schools in the country. Most Palo Alto children attend their neighborhood public school, where they walk or bike to school, contributing further to Palo Alto’s strong “small town” flavor.
