2020 Annual Picnic Canceled

Due to the uncertainty of an end date for sheltering-in-place, the MODA Board is regretfully canceling our Annual Picnic for 2020.  The remainder of the neighborhood events will be reviewed to determine if they can be held in accordance with San Mateo County Health Officer Statements. “People at all levels of risk should know, if they venture out, and interact with others outside of their households, that they have a chance of getting infected and passing the virus on to their household members.”

MODA is a non-profit organization representing the interests of all of the neighbors living in Menlo Oaks, an unincorporated district in San Mateo County, California.

Situated next to Menlo Park and Atherton, the area has a rich history dating back to 1769 when it was part of the 32,240-acre Rancho De Las Pulgas land grant made by the King of Spain.

Menlo Oaks was once a savannah of oak trees, rich with wildlife. Today many Heritage Oaks, Redwoods and other old-growth trees are descendants from those days—some of our trees are 300 and 400 years old, making this area a very special and bucolic place on the San Francisco Peninsula.

Menlo Oaks is home to about 285 households today.  The area is bounded by Ringwood Avenue, Bay Road, Berkeley Avenue, Coleman Avenue and Arlington Way.
