Whisman Station is a housing development built in 1998 consisting of attached townhomes and detached, single-family homes. The heart of the community is Magnolia Park, which displays a large grass field, a fountain, and a playground where neighborhood children love to come and play while their parents chat. Another park in the complex is Chetwood Park, a vast lawn with tall trees framing the borders. It is situated in the middle of the complex, providing a serene view for those homes that face it. Whisman Station residents include young couples mainly in the high-tech industry and young families from various walks of life. Whisman Station is centrally located for commuting; access to a major freeway is no more than a minute away, and the light rail connects with Caltrain at the Mountain View Station at Castro Street, while high-tech companies around the corner. A pedestrian bridge connects Whisman Station to Castro Street over Central Expressway, providing residents a safe and pleasant 15-minute walk to downtown attractions.
