Atherton is a small rural, residential community, with no industrial land-use base. Native live oaks, white oaks, bays, redwoods, cedars, pines, and other ornamental trees cover the six square miles of town. Holbrook Park offers some recreation with ball fields, tennis courts and picturesque walking paths, plus a square for festive gatherings. Some of the peninsula’s finest homes are found in Atherton, situated in this charming community settings. Most of the homes are on large lots, giving a sense of privacy.

- Bark for Life is a Halloween family event that includes our furry family members
- Easter Egg Hunt is time for the little ones to scramble for some Spring goodies
- Library Ice Cream Social and Book Exchange is a great chance to catch up with neighbors and share a passion for reading
