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.
