 Spangenberg Theatre
Spangenberg Theatre, located on the campus of Henry M. Gunn High School, 780 Arastradero Road, was opened in 1965 as a state-of-the-art auditorium serving both the immediate academic and greater surrounding communities. This 953 seat venue was designed for acoustic presentations such as orchestra, symphony and spoken word. It boasts a 40' x 30' x 16' proscenium stage with orchestra pit, 18 single-purchase linesets, full Lx & Snd coverage, wingspace, greenroom and dressing rooms. R. Dean Bunderson, (650) 444-7127, was named the new Event Production Manager in August 2008. spangenbergtheatre.org
 St. Mark's Episcopal Church
St. Mark's was begun in 1948 by twenty families. Soon after, the rapidly growing parish built the chapel and in 1952, the Parish Hall. The traditional church building was completed in 1957 and soon was equipped with one of the most impressive organs on the West Coast. In the early 1990s, the church was remodeled to reflect a desire to be open and inclusive. St. Mark's strives to recognize the spiritual presence of Christ in life and to encourage living out beliefs through actions. St. Mark's mission and outreach is to the community surrounding Palo Alto, the poor near and abroad, and in cooperation with other nearby Episcopal parishes, the Canterbury ministry at Stanford University.
St. Mark's Episcopal Church is located at 600 Colorado Avenue (between Cowper and Middlefield).
 All Saints Episcopal Church
During worship you'll experience the passionate hymn singing of the congregation; choral music in a wide variety of periods and styles; original compositions of the music director; the use of Anglican chant for the psalter; and sung Eucharist Prayers by the clergy.
The outward and visible signs of the dedication to worship through music at the All Saints Episcopal Church are various: the beautiful acoustics of the round sanctuary -- every seat is top quality!; the magnificent, historic and newly refurbished D.A. Flentrop organ; the splendid adult choir; and the dedication as a downtown performance space for the California Bach Society, Ragazzi Boys Choir, Pew Players musical productions, Magnificat early music events, and Topaz women's chamber music ensemble.
 Frost Amphitheatre
Laurence Frost Amphitheater is an earthen bowl formed by excavating 22 feet below ground level and by raising an embankment a similar distance. From the outside, the amphitheater has the appearance of a wooded hill. Within, it is a sylvan theater of green lawn, trees, shrubs and flowers. Approximately 150 tree specimens are growing in and around the bowl. These include many varieties of oak, flowering apple, birch, maple, elm, beech, California bay, conifers, magnolia, manzanita, mulberry, mountain lilac, cherry, liquid-amber, flowering locust and linden. The terraced, grass-covered area seats 6,900. The amphitheater is used for University ceremonies, performing arts events and other programs.
Frost Amphitheater is located on the Stanford University campus at the corner of Galvez Street and Campus Drive. The main entrance to Frost Amphitheater is on Lasuen Street, off Campus Drive.
 Stanford Memorial Auditorium
Memorial Auditorium is Stanford's largest performance facility, seating just under 2000. The entrance to the theater faces Hoover Tower and the fountain. Pigott Theater is the Department's usual venue, with a proscenium stage and approximately 200 seats. The entrance is up a short flight of stairs facing the Graduate School of Business. Prosser Studio is a black box theater seating a maximum of 70, and it is the usual location of workshop productions and student projects. The studio is located upstairs in Memorial Hall, accessible through the back doors of the department, opposite Memorial Way. (Note: If you're looking for KZSU, Stanford's radio station, located in the basement of Memorial Auditorium, the entrance is outside, just next to the entrance to the Pigott, facing the Graduate School of Business.)
Parking for Memorial Hall is available along Memorial Way and in the Memorial lot adjacent to the building (lots marked in yellow). All parking (except where noted) is free after 4pm on weekdays and all day on weekends. For weekday visits to the department, there is metered/pay parking in the Memorial Lot (yellow), as well as the Oval, the Track House, and the Encina lots (marked in orange).
 Cubberley Community Center
Cubberley Community Center is a community center in Palo Alto, California that is housed on the campus of the former Cubberley High School, which was closed in 1979 as a result of declining enrollment. Cubberley High School, best known as the setting of Ron Jones' teaching experiment The Third Wave (later turned into a novel and movie), was one of three public high schools in Palo Alto in the 1960s and 1970s, along with Gunn High School and Palo Alto High School, both of which are still open. The high school was named after Ellwood P. Cubberley, an influential authority in the development of institutionalized education.
Now home to local interest organizations including a ballroom dancing club, wildlife rescue organization, and a Chinese reading room for Palo Alto's large Asian minority, the Cubberley Community Center (known as simply "Cubberley" to locals) has become a prime community area for residents in southern Palo Alto.
The Friends of the Palo Alto Library hold their used book sales at Cubberley on the second Saturday of every month and the following Sunday, filling three entire rooms. They also accept donated books and other items at their Main room on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 2 to 4 pm.
Cubberley also once hosted rock shows by local bands and touring artists including Buffalo Springfield, Santana, William Penn and His Pals, Cake, Third Eye Blind, blink-182, Joseph Behar, and Frank Black.
Its most distinguished tenant includes an extension campus for Foothill College. Community and junior college classes are held at the Cubberley site and are becoming increasingly popular.
The land actually belongs to the Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD), and is leased to the City of Palo Alto, which has been criticized by local residents for mismanagement of its funds and subleasing agreements.
Remnants from academia, it boasts a track, a grassy school 'quad,' and a gym; now used as sites for public running, recreation, and community athletics respectively.
Due to an increasing Generation Y teenage population there had been recent talk of reopening the site as a local high school again. This seems to have fluttered and disappeared due to funding problems, and school district reforms and reconstruction.
