Congrats on 50 fine years, FC! We moved to Neighborhood 2 in 1965 when my parents bought a ranch house (I believe it was Duke & Elliot) in Beach Park Blvd. for about $27K. There were Jack rabbits, sandstorms, and tumble weeds back then because the neighborhood was largely undeveloped yet. So much has changed since then…

The Kim Family 

Happy Anniversary, Foster City! We have been residents of this beautiful city developed by Mr. Foster and his children for 18 years! We know that Mr. Foster and his sons envisioned Foster City to be a place where many people could live together and raise their families. We are so proud to be one of those families.

Favorite Memory:
Our favorite memory is when we started our search for a residence in Foster City, our son was 8 years old and would be entering 3rd grade in the Fall of 2003. He had been attending school in Belmont that did not have any grassy areas. The kids had to take a walk to the Recreation Center across the street. The first stop on our tour was Foster City Elementary School with this nice grassy area on the school grounds. Our son, Aaron said, ” you mean I can play on the grass at this school?” He was sold on the move!!

Favorite Memory:
I have too many to share all…But some of my favorite memories are of hosting 4th of July parties, and watching the fireworks. I also love all the time spent at Sea Cloud Park watching our 3 children play sports. I also love walking along the bay trail. We live in a beautiful city! 

Melissa McDonough

Happy 50th Anniversary Foster City!

Favorite Memory: My family moved to Foster City in 1971 so a lot of my favorite memories date back to that era before the city became so built up and crowded. I loved taking a walk to Thrifty for 5-cents ice cream on a hot day or buying a loaf of stale bread from Lucky for 10-cents and walking to Leo Ryan Park to feed the ducks. I loved sitting in lounge chairs on Foster City Blvd on with a root beer in one hand and potato chips in the other and watching the fireworks from practically our front door (we had uninterrupted view for many years). I loved watching the jack rabbits hop around in the open fields now where the PJCC, Wells Fargo Bank, and Safeway sits and the hawks and turkeys vultures circling overhead. Back then, we had uninterrupted view straight into San Mateo, if you can imagine that! And no, we didn’t have to stand on one of the bridges crossing the lagoons to do it, although the view better. Life was simpler in those days and the quality of life richer
