Crescent Park features a mix of early twentieth century estates and California bungalows, while also offering a collection of homes built around 1900 and 1940. This neighborhood has a Mediterranean feel to it. Walk down the street, and you will see neighbors outside socializing, children riding bikes, and a number of fellow palo altians enjoying a stroll through the neighborhood. Local public schools are considered among the best in northern California. Crescent Park is well-loved for its quiet suburban atmosphere while still having immediate access to downtown Palo Alto and neighboring urban areas.
