2016 MARKS the 35-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
OF THE ORCHARD'S LANDMARK DESIGNATION
The Los Altos Civic Center Heritage Apricot Orchard Park has been the iconic heart of our community since Los Altos was incorporated in 1952.
This scenic and community treasure is more than a century old and purchased by the City nearly 62 years ago. And has been registered in the Santa Clara County inventory of Historical landmarks since 1962.
This year--2016 marks this heritage orchard's 35th anniversary as a City Historic Landmark.
Today this irreplaceable icon of our city's past, present and future continues to be threatened by planning and development discussions across the civic center site.
You can make a difference! Join with your many neighbors who say:
"Save Our Orchard: Save Los Altos!"
This landmark designation assures that no structural alteration will be made to the site without public hearings.
