An icon of Post War Suburbia on the San Francisco Peninsula
A planned community dedicated in providing its residences with the highest standards of “Quality of Life”
Ray Park was the first subdivision to be carved out of the massive Ogden Mills estate. Developed by its’ namesake Milton S. Ray just after world war two, Ray Park is a quiet, bucolic neighborhood of around 2000 residents. The topography is a gentle rise nestled against the coast range foothills. From the upper reaches of Ray Park are spectacular views of San Francisco bay and the Kohl Estate, now the sisters of Mercy High School and convent, with acres of Oak woodland. Above the Sisters of Mercy property is Mills Canyon Park, with hiking and dog walking trails, winding among ancient oaks that were already here when California was part of Mexico. Acknowledging this heritage are streets such Coronado and Balboa Avenues. Lower Ray Park is noted by the tree lined streets, large level lots, and beautifully landscaped homes of all style and sizes. All utilities are underground and wide sidewalks line every street.
The heart of Ray Park is highly rated Lincoln Elementary School and Lincoln Park with public tennis courts, baseball, soccer fields, and a children’s playground.
Ray Park is located 20 miles south of San Francisco on the San Francisco Peninsula. Ray Park is located within the Town of Burlingame whose official designation is the “City OF Trees” with John McLaren, the landscape designer of Golden Gate Park, being one of the original planners. Just south of Burlingame is Silicon Valley. Just north is the booming Biotech industry. Within a short distance from Ray Park are the Caltrain, BART station, and San Francisco Airport. Within walking distance from Ray Park is the historic Mills Plaza Shopping center and all amenities.
