One of the most diverse neighborhoods in Palo Alto, Ventura is home to people of all professions, ages, and walks of life. Mixed in with the residents are small businesses — from musical instruments to specialized electronics, the shops around this neighborhood marks some of the most long-standing independent businesses that have survived the Silicon Valley commercial and tech tide. Its proximity to El Camino gives it easy access to the massive variety of shops, restaurants, and other businesses just a few minutes walk away.
Homes here were built in the 1950s and 70s as smaller bungalows and cottages. Since then, however, many parts of the neighborhood have gone through renovations, expanding into two-story homes and sometimes doubling in size. Just recently — in 2018 — the city began an initiative to restructure transportation and traffic within Ventura alongside a development plan for a 39-acres portion of the neighborhood, including a 12.5-acre plot of land along Park Blvd. The lot has plenty of potential for both commercial and housing uses, and the city is taking care to incorporate resident needs into the final plan for the lot that currently includes Fry’s Electronics. Current ideas for the lot include green spaces, up to 300 housing unit, and recreational businesses like a coffee shop or a music venue. Within Palo Alto, Ventura has historically been a modest, low-key neighborhood, but is on its way to becoming a busier, lively community with quintessential suburban living.
