Feeling the effects of population growth in the 1950s, the town voted to incorporate and has been able to maintain a country feel with large, multi-acre lots and an abundance of open space.

On weekends, visitors and residents alike enjoy picnics, hikes and bike rides at nearby Huddart or Wunderlich Park.

Hills and mountains insulate Woodside from the Pacific Coast, bringing hot summer weather into town and keeping winters mild and pleasant.
