Parks and Recreation
img_ilovecentralpark.pngYou Love Central Park and it Shows!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to all Community members who helped with the promotion of the Macy’s Love Your Park Campaign!! Macy’s Hillsdale reported that a total of $3700 was collected through community donations! When this amount is matched by Macys we expect to receive $7400 to support programs and activities at Central Park such as the summer concert series, the Japanese Garden and the children’s playground. Unfortunately, we have no way of personally thanking individuals, so if you were among the hundreds that donated during the campaign, thank you!

With dozens of parks and hundreds of services, Parks and Recreation touches you and your family’s lives in many different ways.

Whether you are visiting a park playground, enjoying the “urban forest,” or participating in a recreation class, you have access to Parks and Recreation services that help you maintain a positive quality of life. 

Quick Access:


San Mateo City Parks and Recreation Foundation
We are a private, non-profit 501 c 3 organization that works in collaboration with the City of San Mateo Parks and Recreation Department to support parks, recreation programs and capital projects that can be enjoyed by all San Mateo residents.

We believe that parks play a vital role in creating a healthy and vibrant community by:

  • Providing every child a safe and enjoyable place to play
  • Making our neighborhoods attractive and livable
  • Providing access to the serenity and inspiration of nature; and
  • Bringing people together to create memories that last a lifetime
