The park covers 700 acres (2.8 km²) and has 10 million square feet of commercial real estate in an area surrounding Page Mill Road, south west of El Camino Real and extending beyond Foothill Expressway to Arastradero Road.

It is currently home to companies like Hewlett-Packard, Lockheed Martin, Tesla Motors, Nest, Skype, TIBCO and SAP.

Stanford University and the City of Palo Alto partnered to found the park, which was initially named Stanford Industrial Park. In 1951, the initiative was authorized and 209 acres were allocated. In 1953 Varian Associates moved in as the park's first tenant.

The name was changed in the 1970s to Stanford Research Park from Stanford Industrial Park to highlight "the focus of cooperation between the university and the tech companies".
