Palo Alto Orchards

​Bordered by El Camino Real, Arastradero Road, Los Palos Avenue, and Adobe Creek, Palo Alto Orchards is a small neighborhood in southern Palo Alto. What used to be an orchard full of fruits is now a quiet, suburban neighborhood.

​Palo Alto Orchards is an interesting mix of 1950s cottage homes, two story modern architecture, and the Plaza International Apartments. At its heart are several cul-de-sacs with streets named after the original developers - McKellar and Kelly. Removed from the high energy environment of downtown Palo Alto, this neighborhood is characterized by tree-lined, open and calm streets. It is near several parks including Briones Park, Terman Park, and Alta Mesa Memorial Park as well as the well-known Henry M. Gunn High School. While having these relaxing attractions nearby, Palo Alto Orchards is also minutes away from a wonderful downtown area and a gorgeous freeway.

A quick drive up El Camino Real will put you in the heart of one of the most renowned Silicon Valley sectors - Downtown Palo Alto. With several unique restaurants and shops, this downtown area is the vibrant heart of Palo Alto. However, if you’re in the mood for something a little less local you can hop on 280 (known as “The Most Beautiful Freeway in the World”) and take a quick drive down to San Jose or up to San Francisco. Being in close proximity to quite a wide variety of SIlicon Valley venues, Palo Alto Orchards is a wonderful little community in an excellent location.
