Coyote Point Eastern Promenade Rejuvenation Project
Bringing the living coast line back to Coyote Point Recreation Area.

County Parks is now pursuing public and private grant funds for the construction of the Eastern Promenade Project. To date, we have secured grant awards from the California State Coastal Conservancy, California Natural Resources Agency and a private family foundation. Two additional government grant applications are under review by two additional state agencies. We hope to begin the year-long construction project in late 2019 or early 2020.
Donations from you today help us meet our fundraising goal of $5.5 million sooner to restore the beach and improve the promenade trail.
The San Mateo County Parks Foundation, our nonprofit funding partner can accept tax-deductible donations from individuals, corporations and foundations. Please consider making a donation today. Visit their website at supportparks.org.
The April Commission Meeting presentation has been deferred to the June 2nd Parks and Recreation Commission meeting to be held at 4pm at the Board of Supervisors' Chambers at 400 County Center, Redwood City. This is a great opportunity to review and comment upon the 100% construction plans. (Visit this page in May for more information.)
A Public Workshop was held to present conceptual plans for the Coyote Point Eastern Promenade. See the presentation slides presented at the meeting.
Until November 15th, complete a SurveyMonkey to share your opinions and ideas about the design and future uses of the Eastern Promenade.

The consultant has started work. Topographic and utility surveys, soils testing and other review of existing conditions are the initial tasks. The first Public Meeting will be held in October 2015.
The County released a Request for Proposals to locate a firm to complete the project. Proposals are now being reviewed. We anticipate hiring the consultant in June 2015.
Renovations to the western promenade are completed, with re-graded ramps, replacement of block matting, and the revetment leveled with ¼ ton class rock. The improvements increase bay access for a large variety of water enthusiasts. The improved pathway allows for foot and bicycle traffic to resume along this scenic segment of the park.
