Fremont Park University Dr & Santa Cruz Ave, Menlo Park, CA94025
Fremont Park, located on what used to be the site of Camp Fremont, is an unexpected oasis of serenity in…More downtown Menlo Park. Numerous trees tower over businesses in the immediate vicinity and provide shade to visitors who come to sit at the park benches that line the walking trail. Fun fact: The tables are made of recycled plastic bottles.
The site was named for Major General John C. Fremont of the National Guard, circa 1918, who led and the trained troops in the 41st division. Plaques that commemorate the park's history dot the area behind the stage which stands in the middle of the park. Local bands often play on the stage during the summer months.
