Central Los Altos, Los Altos


The Heritage Oaks neighborhood picnic is a tradition that is passed from generation to generation.

Older tract homes sit next to two-story behemoths on the green curbless streets in Central Los Altos. The neighborhood is made up of two connecting triangles. Besides a few zigs and zags, the boundaries of the northern triangle are El Monte Avenue, Springer Road and Foothill Expressway and the southern triangle is bordered by Covington Road, Grant Road and Foothill Expressway.
