Stanford Weekend Acres, Menlo Park


Tucked between a busy traffic corridor on Alpine Road on the one side and San Francisquito Creek and the Stanford Golf Course on the other, Stanford Weekend Acres is easy to miss. Some seven short streets make up the San Mateo County neighborhood, but in many ways they feel independent of each other.

Mosaic pottery and a vintage washer decorate some front lawns, giving the street a somewhat funky appearance. Every Fourth of July the neighbors band together for a block party, and in between, they keep up an active e-mail correspondence.
