PORTOLA VALLEY Real Estate
The Town of Portola Valley was founded in 1964 by a group of civic-minded residents, who donated countless hours performing the necessary tasks to support the operation of a small municipal government. Whether it was unclogging culverts during winter rainstorms or clearing trails, this group of intrepid founding fathers (and mothers!) willingly did much of the work that was vital for the Town's ongoing governance.
Portola Valley has a variety of events for residents to enjoy. There are classes at Town Center, adults' and children's sporting leagues, educational events at the Portola Valley Library, and cultural events at The Sequoias. Summer in Portola Valley is ushered in with the annual Town Picnic, an annual event that is kicked off with the Zot's to Tots 2.2 mile run, a fun run for all ages from the Alpine Inn (formerly known as Rossotti's or "Zots" to locals) to the Town Center Little People's Park (Tots).
