“Great spot for kids”

Coyote Point Recreation Area
Ranked #2 of 27 things to do in San Mateo
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 June 2017 via mobile

We stopped here in our way out of San Mateo heading to Oregon. The kids loved the little beach with small waves. They also loved the castle themed playground. There are restrooms by the playground with a water fountain as well as restrooms with a water sprayer to wash off the sand from the beach. Water shoes might be a good choice since there are rocks to go over before you get to the beach. It costs $6 to get into the park and it is cash only. The airport is not far away. Our kids loved watching the planes land and take off.. We only wish we had known about it sooner

Wow! I never know this treasure existed before last week. I was heading for Poplar Creek Golf Course but took a wrong turn, as I was unfamiliar with the area. I found myself on a road that followed the San Francisco South Bay curving around this beautiful part of San Mateo. It turned out to be Coyote Point Drive and I saw the entrance to the 670 acre recreation area. This is the perfect weekend escape - walking trails, playgrounds for the kids, picnic grounds, and scenic beauty galore. Impressive and inviting.

We love coming for walks at Coyote Point. It is often rather breezy but the view of the bay is beautiful and it is so relaxing to see all the people walking their dogs and flying kites. It's awesome to see the birds in their natural habitats and see the sailboats on the bay. The kids love to stop by the playground area which is kid friendly and safe.

There is also a beach where people swim, but mostly wind surf. It's fun to watch. Has a little boardwalk with ice cream carts. Lovely picnic areas in the woodsy area. Lots of locals and a chance to see the diversity of San Mateo County's climate and people.

Lots of animals are there that can't live in the wild anymore because of the injuries. Most animals there included a bird sanctuary which had golden eagles, barn owls and there were also ducks and turtles swimming in the water. There's were also bird eggs waiting to hatch. Great educational experience for both kids and adults.
