Redwood Shores, California

Redwood Shores is a neighborhood on the San Francisco Peninsula in California. It is located on the eastern edge of Belmont but is actually part of incorporated Redwood City.

Redwood Shores was built up from landfill in the marshes of the San Francisco Bay in the 1960s, much like its neighbor on the north side, Foster City. To the south is the San Carlos small-plane airport.

Redwood Shores is mostly made up of suburban housing.

From the 1960s to 1980s it was the home of the Marine World Amusement Park. In the 1990s Marine World moved to Vallejo, California and was replaced by the world headquarters of Oracle Corporation.
