Clifford Heights, once known as Rattlesnake Hill, but more commonly known today as Palomar Park, is well known for its strong sense of community. The Palomar Property Owners was established in 1956, and residents work to maintain roads, fences, and community property in the neighborhood. They also hold social events, such as an annual neighborhood picnic. Palomar Park borders Cordilleras Heights and offers similar hilly terrain and luxury homes on large lots. There are less than 1,000 residents and 300 homes in this secluded, woodsy borough.

Palomar Park

Palomar Park, or Clifford Heights, has diverse housing ranging from mid-century modern gems to palatial mansions. Lower Clifford Heights has traditional suburban ranchers, built in the 60s and 70s. As you get further up into the hills, homes offer panoramic views and bigger lot sizes. The neighborhood is also homes to Bella Roche Estates, a development built in the 1990s and early 2000s, which is made up of sixteen 4,000 square foot mansions, each on its own ½ acre.


In 1927 Laura and AJ Harwood built the first home in the neighborhood at 158 Palomar Drive. They formed PalPar Inc. and developed 423 acres in the area.

Clifford Heights runs from Edgewood Road north to the San Carlos border, and from Alameda de las Pulgas west to Highway 280. The neighborhood offers rural seclusion, yet is just minutes to downtown Redwood City or San Carlos.
