Midtown, Palo Alto

midtown

The focus on residential life is key to the culture of Midtown, which extends from Oregon Expressway to Loma Verde Avenue and Alma Street to West Bayshore Road.
The Midtown Residents Association has focused on preserving the neighborhood feel that sets the area apart.

In addition to successfully asking the city council to keep the shopping district strictly commercial, members hold monthly meetings and block parties and threw their 10th annual ice cream social in September.
