Cordilleras Heights is better known as Emerald Hills or Emerald Lake Hills. Here you’ll find expansive lots and panoramic views, as well as homes that range from rustic 1920s log cabins to some of the city’s most expensive real estate. This part of the city has narrow streets sans sidewalks that wind their way through the hills, akin to neighboring city of Woodside with a Lake Tahoe or West Marin country vibe. Homes closer to Alameda de las Pulgas are less rustic and more suburban, and offer easy access to Downtown Redwood City.
Neighborhood businesses are centered around the small shopping center at Oak Knoll Drive and Canyon Road. There you can find Canyon Coffee, a local coffee shop, Sancho’s Taqueria, Speederia Pizza, and Canyon Inn, a popular spot to grab a burger and watch the game.
