Bear Gulch Reservoir is a reservoir in the town of Atherton, California.[2] It is the main storage for the Bear Gulch District of the California Water Service, holds 215 million US gallons (810,000 m3) of water, and serves 55,501 people.[3]

It is not open to the public. Mountain lions are occasionally sighted in the area.[4]

If the dam fails, portions of Atherton and unincorporated west Menlo Park are subject to inundation. Refer to the county map[5]
