There are approximately 12,000 trees lining the streets of Los Altos, adding to the rural character enjoyed by residents.
Los Altos has 52.5 acres of City parks and 42 acres of street landscaping.
Los Altos is crossed by three creeks that flow north to San Francisco Bay, Adobe Creek on its western boundary, Stevens Creek on its eastern boundary and Permanente Creek in the middle. Hale Creek is tributary to Permanente Creek, and Permanente Creek is now largely diverted to Stevens Creek by a diversion channel. All three creeks originate on the flanks of Black Mountain.
Los Altos has 100 miles of streets.
Los Altos is a residential community served by seven small retail districts.
