Fair Oaks Community Park

The Fair Oaks neighborhood in Menlo Park is well known for its traffic-slowing British-style “roundabouts”, specifically designed to slow down those impatient folks trying to skirt around the busy traffic on Middlefield and Marsh. What these busy folks tragically miss when they speed through the neighborhood is the wonderful community-owned and cared-for park.

Located on Fair Oaks Avenue, just before it curves and then dead-ends into Edison, this park was started and funded by local residents. It’s a small park, not very ambitious, but very comfortable and homely, with a small basketball court, a number of swings, a sandbox, a jungle gym, and a few other distractions for the kids.

On any given day you’ll see an assortment of local moms, dads, and nannies, all carefully shepherding their little charges as they bustle about on the important business of childhood. This is a park where the neighbors meet, where friendships are struck, where adults get to laugh at the kids’ amusement. It is, in every sense of the word, a community park.
