San Francisquito and Matadero Creeks
Locations: Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Portola Valley, Woodside
The San Francisquito Watershed encompasses 48 square miles in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. We have 12 project sites in a variety of rural and urban areas, including Bol Park and a recently “daylighted” section of Sausal Creek at Portola Valley Town Center. Other sites include Hopkins Park and El Palo Alto Park in Palo Alto, and the garden at the Alma Street pedestrian bridge in Menlo Park, which now includes a rain garden component to promote on-site retention of rainwater and groundwater recharge.
