Redwood City

Named after the towering trees that once covered the San Francisco peninsula, the city of Redwood has a population of around 87,000 people, making it one of the most densely-populated cities in the Bay Area.

Now home to some of the biggest tech companies in the entire United States such as Electronic Arts, Oracle, Avast, and Informatica, Redwood is primarily a white-collar neighborhood with a median household income of $117,469 and a median property value of around $1,250,000.

In terms of architecture, the houses and buildings in Redwood come in different shapes and sizes, from classic styles such as Queen Anne, Mediterranean, and Spanish Colonial Revival, to more modern ones like Edwardian, Craftsman Bungalow, Art Deco, and Mid-Century Modern.

As a neighborhood with a predominantly young workforce, Redwood has an incredibly dynamic and vibrant social scene—one that is largely fuelled by the city’s impressive selection of establishments and attractions.

Residents, for instance, can drop by noted restaurants such as La Viga for a quick seafood lunch, or even visit Freewheel Brewing Company for a casual chat over some British-style beers and ale. Shoppers can also visit Downtown Redwood City and its many stores for high end retail outlets.

Residents or visitors can also visit one of the city’s 24 parks, such as Stulsaft Park, which is the city’s largest open green space. A dog-friendly park, Stulsaft is 42 acres of natural forest and chaparral. A popular destination, Stulsaft has facilities for outdoor activities such as hiking trails and picnic areas.

Redwood is also a safe city, with SafeWise noting in its seventh annual Safest Cities report that crime rates in the city are significantly lower compared to that of other neighborhoods in California.
