Welcome to Menlo Park
Named after two Irish immigrants posted a “Menlo Park” sign in the 1850’s at the entrance of their 1,700-acre estate. The word “Menlo” is derived from the owners’ former home of Meno in County Galway, Ireland meaning “Middle Lake”.
With over 34,000 residents, Menlo Park has flourished into one of the most educated cities in California. Nearly 70% of residents over the age of 25 have earned a bachelor's degree or higher. The city is home to the corporate headquarters of Facebook and where Google was founded. Fall in love with the quaint turn-of-the-century lifestyle that all of “Menlo Park” has to offer. Menlo Park offers great walking and biking trails filled with beautiful natural sceneries.
