Welcome to Menlo Park

 
Originally growing up around the train station, built in 1866 and the registered historic landmark, the City of Menlo Park was incorporated in 1927. The name was taken from the sign Menlo Park, 1854, which was painted on the gate erected by two early settlers who immigrated from Menlough in Ireland. Though Menlo Park has its share of luxury properties, its character retains essentially modest and “small town”, with its charming, custom homes and pretty tree-lined, quiet streets. The downtown business district offers a laid-back pace as shoppers stroll beneath the trees, stopping for a sidewalk espresso or frozen yogurt. Today, the excellent school system and the strong sense of community have made Menlo Park a highly desirable place to work and live. Menlo Park is also the headquarters for much of the venture-capital money fueling the Silicon Valley economy.
