City of Redwood Shores

Redwood Shores is an aesthetically pleasing waterfront community tucked
away on the western border of Redwood City along the San Francisco Bay.
This beautiful enclave is conveniently positioned near Highway 101, half way
between San Francisco and San Jose, just a short trip to the bordering towns
of Belmont, San Carlos and Foster City.

Redwood Shores is built on landfill along the marshes of the Bay and is home
to plenty of native wildlife including ducks, geese, egrets, herons, stingrays,
jellyfish and many other species. Once the location of Marine World, the area
has been transformed into contemporary homes and townhomes,
condominiums, apartments, parks, preserved land and Silicon Valley business
parks and headquarters, including tech giant Oracle Corporation. Many of the
houses and condominiums are surrounded by lagoons with access to inner
waterways through private boating docks. This beautiful destination provides
the unique setting for several collegiate rowing races, including competitions
among Pac-12 Conference universities. It is also the home of the Redwood
Shores Bay Club (otherwise known as the Pacific Athletic Club or PAC), a
private sports club with a gym, tennis and squash courts, pools and clubhouse

Redwood Shores is highlighted by several beautiful parks maintained by the
Redwood City Parks and Recreation Department. Featuring turf soccer fields,
an annual Easter Egg Hunt and plenty of dog friendly space, the parks system
offers many options for outdoor fun. The Redwood Shores Bay Trail winds
throughout the community, creating a wonderful destination for hiking,
biking, running and dog walking against the backdrop of beautiful San Mateo
Bridge, Belmont Hills and San Francisco Bay views.

Redwood Shores is part of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District.
Local elementary schools include Redwood Shores Elementary and Sandpiper
Elementary.  Middle School students are served by Ralston Middle School, and
high school students attend Carlmont High School, both of which are located
in Belmont. The newly constructed Redwood Shores Branch Library acts as a
great community resource as well.
