Just four miles southeast of downtown Redwood City, Friendly Acres
supports a dense population. Residential housing dominates this neighborhood, except for an industrial strip in the north and a few retail pockets. Ample apartment rental opportunities pepper the district, with a heavy concentration along the Rolison Road corridor. Flat terrain and tree-lined streets allow for pleasant evening strolls and dog-walks in this neighborhood.
For shopping, residents drive 10 minutes to the Stanford Shopping Center, an open-air mall with relaxing fountains and gardens. If you want to wind down with some beer, head to the Freewheel Brewing Company, a popular pub experience that combines British ales and eats with California fare.
