"Nice Palo Alto Park"

Heritage Park is set in an ideal location - within walking distance from downtown, but not so far away that the traffic laws take over, and close to many of the more modest (to be fair, a relative term) in this affluent Silicon Valley town. The park has a great little playground, is relatively uncrowded, and has enough green space to throw a frisbee around or even hold a small-scale company picnic. For anyone hosting games or activities in this area, it is important to note that the space is FLAT, thereby safe to run around on.

The centralized location makes it easy for pedestrians from any of the nearby residents to walk to - and there are many residences nearby. This park adds a great respite to this high-traffic, busy techie town.
