The Pulgas Water Temple is a stone structure west of I-280 at 56 Cañada Road, Redwood City, California, United States, designed by architect William G. Merchant. It was erected by the San Francisco Water Department to commemorate the 1934 completion of the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct and is located at the aqueduct's terminus; originally water flowed through a vault under the temple itself, but new requirements for treatment require it to be diverted to a plant nearby.Plan my Redwood City trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
Pulgas Water Temple reviews
Lovely place to picnic or hangout for a while. But beware of no parking during pandemic. The parking lot has been closed during pandemic and there is absolutely no parking along Canada Road... more »
This is a peaceful place to visit. You can easily get removed from the humdrum of life here. I ca see how others find it photogenic. more »
Amazing scene with some nice history. It isn't too difficult to get to even with midday traffic. Very peaceful and such a wonderful place to explore. Not full of ridiculous puzzles or rooms where you have to fight off your shadow.
An amazing place, beautiful and serene. It is an amazing place for a wedding or just a nice romantic stroll. The parking lot is often closed and locked, but you can park on Canada road and walk in (or better yet, ride your bike there on Bike Sunday.) It has the freshest, best water (and it's free) that you can get. And restrooms. But go there for the views and atmosphere.
