Cordes is a wooded hillside neighborhood offering views of the San Francisco Bay and the surrounding community. The neighborhood is bordered by the town of Belmont, San Carlos Avenue and El Camino Real. Arguello Park is at the heart of Cordes with its recreational baseball diamond, tennis courts, play structure and plenty of grass for lawn games and picnics. Small parks within the neighborhood, Hillcrest Circle Park, Rosek Park and Cedar Street Park, add scenic spots for neighbors to gather and dog walking destinations! Next to Arguello Park, Arundel Elementary school focuses on early elementary education, teaching preschool through the 3rd grade.

Follow San Carlos Avenue to El Camino to start exploring downtown San Carlos. Find unique shops and a variety of restaurants for a fun time out. The San Carlos Museum of History on Laurel Street, located inside a replica of San Carlos’ 1923 firehouse, houses artifacts that tell the town’s story, including its part in the electronics industry that shaped Silicon Valley.
