Originally a large apricot and prune orchard, Waverly Park has become Mountain View’s most upscale neighborhood. This neighborhood offers the best of Mountain View in many ways, including the most spacious homes situated on large lots and a great park that provides a central gathering place for the neighborhood. Most of the homes in Waverly Park were built in phases between the 1960s and the 1980s, and are often over a generous 3,000 square feet.
Not only are the homes far more spacious than those in other neighborhoods, Waverly Park also boasts abundant recreational places. Cooper Park, almost as large as Cuesta Park, has tennis courts and large grassy fields where the neighborhood kids run around and play soccer. While not as communal as Cuesta Park, Waverly Park still has several neighborhood events with the 4th of July being the most festive, as residents bring their barbecues out to their yards or around the cul-de-sac. The entrance into Waverly Park has been improved by the completed construction of The Enclave, 53 high-end homes on large lots approximately 8,000 square feet.
Waverly Park has excellent walking and bike riding in the neighborhood or on the nearby Stevens Creek Trail, which allows biking to the Baylands and Google. For shopping, groceries are easily obtained on Grant Road at Nob Hill or Ranch 99, and the downtown area is just 10 minutes away.
