Sister City program

Menlo Park's Sister City program was created in November 2015 and the city joined Sister Cities International.

Although Menlo Park's formal program didn't start until 2015, its beginnings started in 2013 with the signing of a friendship agreement with the City of Galway, Ireland.

In 2020, the City Council approved a plan for the program to be governed by a community-based nonprofit organization that will work collaboratively with the city.
