Corte Madera

Corte Madera Links

Corte Madera is located between Mill Valley, the Bay, Mount Tamalpais, Larkspur and Greenbrae. At first glance a visitor will notice that the town has two major shopping centers, The Village and The Town Center. These convenient centers boast some fine stores and restaurants, and a healthy support to the fine Larkspur School Distinct!

Corte Madera is an eclectic blend of homes. There are apartments, condos, vintage bungalows and rustic cabins. Some are located near the bay, some around a lake, and some on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais. There are several subdivisions which have a feeling like Ozzie and Harriet, yet there are secluded homes that have hidden the rich and famous.

Corte Madera also has a couple of outstanding large parks with BBQ areas, children play equipment and fields to run and play. There are beautiful hanging flower baskets that decorate some of the city lights, a small town square with a piccolo pavilion, and a couple of great walking and biking trails. Bird watching is a must, especially the birds of the bay such as snowy egrets and blue heron. These can be found along Corte Madera Creek, or along the Bayside.

The weather is great in Corte Madera, sunny without too much heat. People have discovered Corte Madera and love its quick commute and great value.
