Dumbarton is the most affordable area of Redwood City and offers easy access to Downtown with restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. It is also located with convenient access to the Redwood City Caltrain station and Highway 101.  Due to it’s central location, there is a lot of traffic congestion around Middlefield and Woodside Road during commute hours. There are also many apartment buildings, commercial, and industrial properties in the area, which gives it more of a gritty, urban vibe than many other Redwood City neighborhoods.

Fair Oaks, Friendly Acres, Dumbarton Park, and Redwood Village

Fair Oaks is adjacent to North Fair Oaks in Menlo Park and is home to Fair Oaks Community Center, the Fair Oaks Branch of the Redwood City Library and a variety of businesses, restaurants and shops along Middlefield Road. The North Fair Oaks Festival, in the summer, features a parade, live music, food and a crafts fair. Homes in this neighborhood are all different styles and size, and most were built between the 1920s and 1980s.

Homes in Friendly Acres are at a higher price point than other neighborhoods in Dumbarton. Here you'll find one-story homes built just after WWII, along with some newer construction. Most homes range in size from 1,000 to 1,400 square feet.

Dumbarton Park is the city’s most affordable neighborhood and is mostly made up of multi-residential buildings along with a handful of one and two bedroom single family homes built between WWII and the 1980s.

Redwood Village is almost a square-mile and offers a mix of one and two story homes and apartment buildings. This neighborhood is also home to 10-acre Hoover Park which offers picnicking and athletic fields. The residents in the area are mostly renters and the Eastern border of Redwood Village is industrial.
