CENTRAL PARK

Central Park is a mix of single family homes and apartments, depending on what neighborhood you're in. The homes here are a mix of pre and post-war on the east side and post-war ranch-style homes with spacious, flat backyards on the west side.  Central park has access to shopping centers such as Woodside Plaza, which offers grocery stores, retail shops, and restaurants. It’s also very convenient to Highways 101 and 280 with access at Woodside Road and Jefferson Avenue/Farm Hill Boulevard.

Woodside Plaza, Palm Park, and Roosevelt

Woodside Plaza is a family-friendly neighborhood where you will find beautiful tree-lined streets and a tight-knit neighborhood community.  In the late 1940s, developers built up the area known today as Woodside Plaza with three-bedroom, single story ranch-style homes. The average size is 1,000-1,500 square feet and lots are typically 5,000-8,000 square feet.

Valota Road runs along the boundary between Palm Park and Woodside Plaza. Palm Park offers more entry-level options and the average price per square foot is a little less expensive than Woodside Plaza. Homes here range from entry-level single family homes on streets with multi-unit dwellings to higher-end homes that offer more square feet and new construction. On average, Palm Park homes are on the smaller side around 1,000 sq. ft. You can also find some pre-war Mediterranean and bungalow gems in the neighborhood.

Roosevelt is a great neighborhood for first-time buyers in Redwood City. It’s less expensive than neighboring Mount Carmel, and offers a range of 1940s and 50s ranch homes, along with a few mid-century Eichlers. This neighborhood is home to Red Morton Community Park, a 30-acre space that once served as the training grounds for the San Francisco 49ers. Now the park is full of  athletic fields, picnic areas, and playgrounds — including the Magical Bridge Playground opening in 2018.



History

Five Points — named for the intersection of El Camino, Main Street, Woodside Road, Redwood Avenue, and Spruce Street — once hosted a collection of tanneries, boarding houses, and saloons frequented by Woodside lumber camp workers. In the 1960s, Five Points transformed from rowdy to residential, with the construction of the Woodside overpass. Boarding houses were soon replaced by ranch homes and tanneries with apartment complexes.

The historic Union Cemetery is where the city’s early settlers are buried. It is a California Historical Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


Central Park spans from El Camino Real west to Alameda de las Pulgas, and from Woodside Road north to Jefferson Avenue. The neighborhood of Palm Park is in the eastern Half of Central Park, and Woodside Plaza occupies the the western portion of this area.
