About

Flood Park is made up of three sub-areas: Suburban Park, Flood Park, and Lorelei Manor. Despite the sub-areas, residents of Flood Park Triangle all share two desirable aspects — relative affordability and convenience.

Established during the post-World War II housing development boom, many of the homes date back to the 1940s and 1950s. Streets lined with oak and bay trees create a peaceful setting, minimizing noise from Interstate 101. In the middle of the neighborhood is Flood County Park, a twenty-one acre expanse with baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, a petanque court, horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, and lots of lawn and trails. It is a popular place for residents of Flood Park and surrounding neighborhoods to get together for sports or just enjoy some open space. A short hop onto Bay Road takes residents onto Interstate 101, Silicon Valley’s prime artery.

Each of the three sub-areas of Flood Park Triangle have fairly similar housing and demographic compositions. Homes are typically three bedroom, one bath Bungalows sitting on lots of approximately 6,000 square feet. In some homes, second bathrooms were added on to provide further functionality. Housing prices in this neighborhood are dictated by size and location. The distance between the home and Interstate 101 often plays a large role in the final sales price.
