General Overview of Emerald Lake Hills, California


Located in San Mateo County, California, Emerald Lake Hills is a census-designated place, also known as a CDP. It is located between San Carlos, Redwood City, and Woodside, as it’s situated among oak tree hills and is given its borders by Edgewood Road, Farm Hill Boulevard, Alameda de las Pulgas, and Interstate 280.


The total population of Emerald Lake Hills is 4,278, which represents an increase from 2000, in which it was 3,899.


Emerald Lake Hills is also quite a small town, as its total area is only 1.203 square miles. This gives it a population density of 3,600 people per square mile.


The median age of the population is 46 years, which is a high number.


In comparison, the State of California’s median age is 33.3 years and the national median age is 37.2 years. Emerald Lake Hills has a median age that is over 13 years above the state average and is just around 9 years above the national average.


52.2% of the population is at least 45 years old.


The origins of Emerald Lake Hills can be traced all the way back to the middle of the 19th century, like much of California, in which the Gold Rush and the victory over Mexico lead to many people heading to California for land. The land where Emerald Lake Hills currently sits was once known as Rancho de las Pulgas, which translates into “Flea Ranch,” and squatters eventually inhabited it, as they did not believe that the Arguello family’s title to the ranch was valid.


Part of the land was eventually to become Redwood City, and the entire ranch became divided as the 19th century progressed.


Eventually, during World War I, Emerald Lake Hills was conceived of as a a sort of resort community for the wealthy living in San Francisco, of which it was successful. After World War II and into the post war boom period, the area started to become residential in nature, which still characterizes it today.


Emerald Lake Hills, interestingly, contains two different subdivisions, which were first created in the 1920s. They are Emerald Lake and Emerald Hills.


The median household income of Emerald Lake Hills is an astronomically-high $165,311, as it’s one of the highest in the entire State of California and the United States. This represents an increase from 2000, in which it was $127,250.


In comparison, the State of California has a median household income of $58,328 and the United States has a median household income of $53,046. As you can see, Emerald Lake Hills has a median household income that is over three times the national average and close to three times the state average.


In keeping with its high median household income, Emerald Lake Hills also has a phenomenal crime rate. It has a crime rate index of 75, meaning that it’s safer than 75% of the cities in the United States.


There is a 1 in 904 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Emerald Lake Hills and a 1 in 90 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


The State of California has a 1 in 249 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 38 chance of being a victim of a property crime in comparison. Emerald Lake Hills does have an excellent crime rate in both categories, but its property crime rate is a bit closer to the state average than its violent crime rate is, which is something to keep in mind.
