Mill Valley and Beyond

Over the years, our local leaders and residents have played a huge role in helping The Redwoods thrive by supporting our retirement community in so many ways. We are happy and proud to be an integral part of The City of Mill Valley.

Mill Valley began as a sleepy weekend getaway for affluent, turn-of-the-century San Franciscans. Today, with a population of 13,600, it is known for its strong civic leadership and has a reputation as a cultural focal point in the Bay Area. The internationally known Mill Valley Film Festival and events such as the Fall Arts Festival, Dipsea Race, Mountain Play and Wine Tasting Festival have strong regional followings, as do performances at the Marin Theatre Company, which is just a short walk from The Redwoods on Miller Avenue.

There are 13 parks within the city and nearby public lands including the Golden Gate National Recreational Area, Pt. Reyes National Seashore, Muir Woods, Mt. Tamalpais, and China Camp. The Redwoods borders Richardson Bay and adjacent protected wetlands in which the constantly changing cycle of nature can be seen every day.

The city also offers 10 churches, a public library, five public schools, and one high school. The award-winning Mill Valley Community Center is just down the street and is part of the city's extensive parks and recreation department.

Mill Valley has an active business community with many popular restaurants, boutiques, specialty stores, and a variety of services. In addition, there are more than 70 physicians and about 20 dentists with offices in the city.
