Redwood Oaks is a neighborhood in the San Francisco metropolitan area. The community is situated east of Woodside Road, west of Stockbridge Avenue, south of El Camino Real and north of Alameda De Las Pulgas. The Bayshore Freeway also runs north of the neighborhood, making it easy for residents to commute to work or travel to nearby recreational and nature sites.
The yards of the homes are landscaped with green and lush vegetation, such as acacia and eucalyptus trees, valley oaks and cottonwoods. Flowers, such as poppies and asters, color yards while potted geraniums and lilies adorn patios and porches. All the floral shades and hues can also be noted in nearby community parks, such as Linden Park, located just north of the community. The small park is a nice place to bring kids or grandkids as it provides plenty in the way of playground equipment to keep them amused.
The aforementioned blooms welcome hummingbirds too, especially broad-tailed hummingbirds, Anna’s hummingbirds, and black-chinned and broad-tailed varieties. Residents who enjoy birding can also catch sightings of petrels, herons, egrets, and gulls on the shores of nearby San Francisco Bay. The community is favored by walkers and hikers alike who enjoy visiting the nearby nature preserves in the area. Trails challenge walkers as many are uphill climbs.
For anyone who is an avid golfer, the Menlo Country Club is located to the southwest of the neighborhood. While the area is considered walkable, most residents drive to nearby parks and recreational venues to enjoy leisure and walking activities.
