Walking Tour: Menlo Park
The walk features buildings of Menlo Park’s Camp Fremont, celebrating its centennial. Led by the Menlo Park Historical Association, it begins at the outside flagpole immediately in front of the McArthur Park Restaurant (27 University Avenue, Palo Alto). The building, designed by Julia Morgan, served as a 1918 Hostess House for visiting families of soldiers training for action in the Great War. The tour will visit El Palo Alto. Spanning El Camino Real, the walk will pass by the Cambridge Avenue pillars marking the Stanford Park subdivision, mapped in 1907. The tour visits at the now former Oasis pub building, which was originally another Camp Fremont building built in 1918 for the YMCA.
Difficulty Level: Easy (2.0 miles on sidewalks, level ground).
