Named after the large, old-growth oaks that are sprinkled throughout this community, Embarcadero Oaks is a pleasant neighborhood in Palo Alto. It is made up of a mixture of different housing styles including modern ranch homes, grand Tudor Revivals and Monterey Colonial styles. With this pleasant variety, Embarcadero Oaks is a quiet and architecturally diverse community.

Best known for its annual Christmas Tree Lane, a brightly colored event that lights up Fulton Street for a couple weeks around Christmas time with trees and several displays, the neighborhood really comes alive during this time. As a popular local attraction, it is easily made possible by Embarcadero Oak’s pleasantly designed roads. It is a great area with easy access to many of the amenities of Palo Alto with flat, smooth roads and well-designed bike lanes. Many of the local residents opt to take their bike everywhere due to the ease with which biking is possible.

The neighborhood is defined by streets that branch off of Seale Avenue, and is surrounded by several parks including Rinconada Park, Palo Alto Lawns Bowl Club,  and El Camino Field. With its conveniently constructed biking roads, Embarcadero Oaks is only minutes away from these outdoor amenities. Additionally, this community is close to several locally renowned schools including Castilleja School, Walter Hays Elementary School, and Jordan Middle School. Having beautiful parks and high-quality schools while being minutes away from Palo Alto’s famous downtown area all make Embarcadero Oaks one of the premier neighborhoods in Palo Alto.
