About

Bordered by Los Altos to the east and Palo Alto to the north is the charming and coveted Redwoods neighborhood. Due to the area sitting on a flatter section of Los Altos Hills and the close proximity to downtown, the Redwoods is considered by many to be easier to navigate than the Foothills and Palo Alto Hills. Town Hall is situated within this neighborhood, as is the private Pinewood School with its three campuses on Fremont Road. The Redwoods also boasts convenience for residents, as it is near businesses lining Arastradero and Hillview Roads.

Throughout the Redwoods, homes are often custom-built and can range from modest, single-story Ranchers to magnificent estates. This neighborhood’s narrower, steeper streets lead to incredible bay views, while the nearby Fremont Hills Country Club provides its members with a variety of outdoor activities. Purissima Park is also close by, and is home to the Los Altos Hills/Los Altos Little League, the Los Altos Hills Horseman’s Association, and the Los Altos Hills Parks and Recreation Department. On weekends and weekday evenings, little league practices are often held at Purissima Park.

The Redwoods neighborhood abounds with outdoor recreation. Shoup Park and the Redwood Grove Nature Preserve lie close to downtown and border Los Altos, and are gems for the local nature enthusiast. Shoup Park is a delightful and charming park with two separate play areas, one for younger children and one for older children. The Redwood Grove sits on six acres of land and is the site of popular summer day camps for children. Its nature center, the Redwood Grove Nature Preserve, is also home to the Fava Indian Artifact Collection.

The northern end of the Redwoods neighborhood falls within the Palo Alto Unified School District and the southern end into the Los Altos School District. An agreement exists between both school districts that allows elementary-aged children to attend Gardner Bullis due to proximity. Homebuyers, however, should verify enrollment.
