Junipero Serra Park Activities
A small visitor center is located at the Park Headquarters. It has exhibits which show the various habitats contained within the Park. An overlook near the Park Headquarters provides and unequaled view of South San Francisco and San Bruno Mountain.
Meadow View Playground re-opened in 2009 after extensive renovations. The new playground provides kids spectacular 54-foot-long double slides and several climbing structures: a large cable net play structure, a smaller climbing apparatus, and climbing boulders. Positioned near the top of the park, adjacent Buckeye and Meadow View picnic areas and the Bay View Shelter, this area offers a unique view of the bay with a birds eye view of landings and take-offs at San Francisco International Airport.
The Quail Loop Trail (1.2 miles), leads the visitor through a changing panorama of habitats from the creek, through the woods and to the open grasslands. The self-guided Live Oak Nature Trail (.3 mile) offers short interpretive loop along the park's lower north-facing slope. A Live Oak Nature Tail Interpretive Guide is available.
Several drop-in picnic sites are located throughout the park.
