Spotted: Nano Park on Oak Drive in Menlo Park

by Linda Hubbard on November 20, 2016

Regular walkers of “the creek loop” probably noticed the front yard landscaping project that was going on during the summer at a home on the corner of Oak Drive and Ambar Way. What undoubtedly surprised them when it was over was the creation of what homeowner Shosh Cohen describes as a “Nano Park.”

The park has hedges on three sides, a bench for sitting, a drinking fountain, and a water bowl for passing canines.

“I guess because we had a spigot near the street, people would sometimes stop and ask us if they could have a drink,” explained Shosh. “So, I thought, ‘why not put a drinking fountain in?’ It was a good way to share the property.

“The little bench fit perfectly. The other day I wandered out and there was a man there reading a book. It’s something that just makes you feel good.”
