We held a day of our family reunion at this beautiful place. There were trails around the area, open area for sports, picnic areas, kite surfing rentals as well as a great view of the bay.

You can bring a bag lunch and just find a place to sit and chill. Very peaceful. Watch the world go by. It's a peaceful place and we all need a bit of peaceful right?

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.
