In Spanish, Corte Madera means “chop wood”, and the West side of town is still surrounded by the beautiful redwoods that supplied lumber to help build the city of San Francisco. Like most Marin towns Corte Madera is a hikers' and bikers' paradise. Even the local mall can be a nice place to spend time outdoors. A wide range of shopping options abound at two upscale outdoor shopping centers: The Village and Town Center. Every Wednesday afternoon the Town Center is transformed into a Farmer’s Market, complete with organic produce and fresh baked goods. The local park is the gathering spot for locals, with a playground, skate park, walking paths, and a great 4th of July celebration. To the locals Corte Madera and Larkspur are known as Twin Cities. Both towns share the same abundant charm, warm weather and school district, though parts of East Corte Madera fall in Tiburon’s Reed Union School District. From the flat lots to the open space of the East Side, to the tree-lined, hillside neighborhoods of Chapman Park and Christmas Tree Hill, there is a variety of fun activities and much to like about Corte Madera. The best part of this town is the convenience of the nearby Larkspur Ferry Terminal and easy access to highway 101 for a short commute to San Francisco.
