Waverly Park, Mountain View

waverly_park

The Waverly Park neighborhood, like just about every other neighborhood in Mountain View, sits upon what used to be orchard land. Joel Levin lay stake to the area in the mid 1800s.

Today, the last vestige of Levin’s land — for many years a pumpkin patch bordering the Waverly Park neighborhood — is under development.

At the heart of the neighborhood — which is bounded by Grant Road, Highway 85 and Sleeper and Bryant avenues — lies Cooper Park.
