Attend the Redwood Kiwanis Farmers Market

September 19th, 2016

Many of the residents at our Redwood City apartments love to shop locally. The food tastes fresher, the vendors are friendlier, there is a unique selection of items for sale and you are supporting smaller, local businesses.

For anyone who chooses to call Redwood City home, there is a wonderful local farmer’s market that is within walking distance. The Redwood City Kiwanis Farmers Market provides you with quick, easy access to local vendors which sell everything from fruits and vegetables to meats and baked goods.

The History of the Redwood City Kiwanis Farmers Market

The idea for a farmers market came about when four local individuals gathered together to provide the community with access to fresh produce that comes straight from local farmers. The best way to provide the community with access to these resources was to create a local farmers market.  The local farmers market that was created was called the Redwood City Kiwanis Farmers Market.

It has been 37 years since the first farmers market. It has since become an important part of Redwood City. Residents of Redwood City gather every Saturday throughout the summer to shop for locally grown meats, fruits and vegetables.

Support Local Farmers

Local farmers set up stands and booths that have everything from fruits and vegetables, to eggs, milk and meat available for shoppers to purchase. Everything you could ever want or need is available for sale at the local farmers market.

Find Tasty Baked Goods at the Local Farmers Market

One of the unique aspects of the Redwood City Kiwanis Farmers Market, that residents love, is the ability to shop for tasty baked goods. Local bakeries will set up booths throughout the farmers market. Visitors to the farmers market will be able to purchase freshly baked doughnuts, cupcakes, pies, cakes and cookies.

Details for the Redwood City Kiwanis Farmers Market

The Redwood City Kiwanis Farmers Market is held every Saturday from April until November. It is located at 500 Arguello St.

The farmers market opens up at 8 a.m. and closes around noon. If you plan on attending, it is best to arrive early as you will have more items to choose from than if you arrive later in the day.

Live within Walking Distance

Township Apartments are located just minutes away from the farmers market. Call us today to schedule an appointment to tour our luxury apartments in Redwood City, California.

5 Outdoor Running Trails in Redwood City

August 18th, 2016

Pounding the pavement around your apartments in Redwood City can start to feel like quite a bore over time. If you crave a scenic view and ambient nature sounds while you run, head on over to one of the many outdoor running trails in this expansive city. You can enjoy the best of the great outdoors while continuing to tone your physique by regularly utilizing these running trails. You can even bring your dog along on this exciting journey. Here are five awesome running trails to consider for your next run.

Edgewood Park

At Edgewood Park, you can choose from a large variety of trail options crisscrossing through the parkland. Make sure to plan for several stops along your route to give yourself time to enjoy the many treasures in this park space. You may see beautiful butterflies, deer, wildflowers and other elements of nature during your visit.

Redwood Shores Bay Trail Next To Your Redwood City Apartments

The Redwood Shores Bay Trail will inspire you to step outside your Redwood City apartments and run alongside the gorgeous waterfront. No matter which way you turn, you can watch the horizon to enjoy the view of the ocean inlet or San Bruno Mountains.

Bair Island

The trails along Bair Island take you around the various water features found in this area. On windy days, the surf may blow through the air and cool you down as you run. With more than 3,000 acres to cover, you could spend a lifetime on this island without hitting every trail here.

Purisima Creek Redwoods

The Purisima Creek Redwoods trails actively transport you to another world. The trails take you through forested land along the Santa Cruz Mountains. You may spot Half Moon Bay as you trek between the gigantic redwoods.

Stulsaft Park

Stulsaft Park boasts an impressive 42-acres despite its proximity to the nearby city. The parkland naturally feels secluded to help you experience the sensation of leaving it all behind as you run. If you bring along your dog on your runs, make sure to check out the off leash trail.

Try out each running trail on the list to find your favorite location. You may end up wanting to split your time between all of the trails due to their unique views and atmosphere. When you return to your apartment, we invite you to give the team at the Township Luxury Apartments a call at 855-809-8627 to learn about our available floor plans.

Theater Show

5 Reasons to Get Outside This Summer

July 12th, 2016

Although it doesn’t get too hot in the Bay Area, too many people stay indoors all summer long. While air conditioning can be nice, be sure to enjoy the perfect summer weather in Redwood City, California, by visiting these five local parks.

Pulgas Ridge Open Space

Pulgas Ridge is a gorgeous nature preserve full of hiking trails right in our own backyard here in Redwood City. In fact, the park is just over 4 miles from Township. Certain trails are dog friendly, as long as your pooch stays on a leash no longer than 6 feet. Just leave your bike at home; biking isn’t permitted on these trails.

Big Canyon Park

Big Canyon Park, located in our northwestern neighbor San Carlos, unfortunately tends to get overlooked in favor of the bigger parks in the area. Although a little on the small side at 16 acres, the park’s scenic hiking trail around the canyon is great for children and beginner hikers. Just be wary, as some parts of the unpaved trail can be extremely narrow.

Bedwell Bayfront Park

If you want to enjoy a cool breeze off of the San Francisco Bay, check out Bedwell Bayfront Park in Menlo Park. It’s a great spot for a hike, especially for birders; Bedwell is home to roughly 160 different species of bird. Just keep in mind that the park closes relatively early (9:00 p.m. in June and July and 8:30 p.m. in August). Early birds will be happy to know that the park opens at 7:00 a.m. each morning.

Water Dog Lake Park

Also known as the John S. Brooks Memorial Open Space, Water Dog Lake Park is just a few miles northwest in Belmont. The park is made up of a network of different trails that are great for hiking and biking. Appropriately, leashed dogs are welcome throughout Water Dog Lake Park. Your dog will especially love cooling off with a dip in the lake.

Laurelwood Park

Just a 20-minute drive away, Laurelwood Park in San Mateo is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. Laurelwood’s centerpiece is its well-maintained hiking trails leading to nearby Sugarloaf Mountain. The 225-acre park also features numerous open spaces, picnic areas and a brand new playground for the kids. Just keep in mind that alcohol isn’t allowed within the park’s premises.

As nice as the luxury amenities are at Township apartments in Redwood City, try checking out one (or more) of the many gorgeous local parks in the Bay Area!
