Inviting, gracious and charming  is what most people have to say about Crescent Park and its stately homes and tree lined streets.  It is an area that has been growing since the 1920’s offering a wonderful array of classic homes on some of Palo Alto’s prettiest tree lined streets. Bordered by San Francisquito Creek, Newell Road, Fulton Street and Channing Avenue, Crescent Park provides easy access to downtown, Hwy 101, the main library, and Eleanor Pardee Park. Known as a warm and friendly neighborhood, there is an active neighborhood association that keeps neighbors connected and informed.   While attention in the past few years has focused on Old Palo Alto, you will find the same charm and allure in the architecture and sense of community in Crescent Park.   Schools in Crescent Park are Duveneck Elementary, Jordan Middle School and Palo Alto High, all part of the highly rated Palo Alto Unified School District.
