The San Mateo County Department of Parks is here to provide you with recreational opportunities in a safe and effective manner, and to protect and enhance the natural resources of the County.

We operate 22 separate parks, encompassing over 16,000 acres, and 190 miles of county and local trails, including three regional trails. Parks are located throughout the County and represent a wide variety of natural settings including a coastside marine reserve, a bayside recreational area, coastal mountain woodland areas, and urban sites.
