West Menlo Park Reviews

1 review
I love West Menlo Park, I grew up here and it was a great, family friendly fun enviornment. It has the best weather and is only 45 minutes from the best city San Francisco and only 30 minutes from a beach, Half Moon Bay and an hour from Santa Cruz. The people here are all so nice and caring in my opinon
