Palo Alto is a city in California known as the “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.” Located on the southwestern corner of the San Francisco peninsula, Palo Alto is home to approximately 70,000 residents. The city’s commitment to community life shapes the city’s recreational life: Palo Alto features 36 parks, 39 playgrounds, 41 miles of walking and biking trails, five libraries, and five community and youth centers. In addition, Palo Alto also offers its own gas, electric, water, sewer, and storm drainage services at competitive rates. Recognized for its innovation and excellent city management, Palo Alto draws newcomers in with its fast-paced economy, jobs, universities, and upscale downtown.
Since its incorporation in 1894, Palo Alto has developed significantly. Still, the city retains many of the Spanish names associated with the town’s history, local heritage, former residents, and descriptive terms from the days of its development. A prominent development in Palo Alto is Stanford University, built as a memorial to the only child of Leland and Jane Stanford who died of typhoid fever. The university has since become one of the nation’s leading research and teaching institutions. Preserving history is important to residents of Palo Alto, and in 1979 the City of Palo Alto’s Historic Preservation Program began. Four historic districts are still standing today, featuring buildings from as far back as 1893.
Located south of the San Francisco Bay, Palo Alto shares its borders with Mountain View, Los Altos, Menlo Park, and Portola Valley. The city experiences warm, Mediterranean summers and mildly wet winters due to the neighboring Santa Cruz mountains. Visitors and residents alike are drawn to the city for its jobs, outdoor recreation, well-planned downtown, and the prestigious Stanford University.
