Cuesta Park, Mountain View

cuesta_park

With its eclectic mix of old-style cottages, apartment complexes and new single-family homes, the Cuesta Park neighborhood feels like a 1950s-era suburb.

And, the people of Cuesta Park exemplify the traditions of the era it resembles. Genuine kindness and respect for each other and their neighbors is an everyday occurrence.

A key component to the sense of community that resounds in the Cuesta Park neighborhood is the Cuesta Park Neighborhood Association or CPNA.

Neighborhood gatherings abound in this Mountain View locality, and many of them take place in the sprawling 25-acre park bearing the neighborhood’s name, Cuesta Park.

The park plays host to summer concerts, fall picnics, wildflower planting, and every May it’s the location of the Mountain View chapter of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
