Coyote Point Recreation Area is a historic and popular bayfront park in San Mateo County. With more than 430,000 visitors each year, this park offers something for everyone. As San Mateo County grows and becomes more diverse, our park and recreational offerings also must evolve to meet changing preferences.
The San Mateo County Parks Foundation is funding site improvements to increase access and bring the living coastline back to Coyote Point. The Coyote Point Eastern Promenade project includes a new sandy beach, shaped as a crenulate bay.
Coyote Point Eastern Promenade Project Elements
- Universal access – beach mats for bay access, more ADA and van ADA parking + ADA bathrooms
- Year-round access – even during high tide; a sandy beach year round is great for families; currently no access at high tide
- Planning for sea-level rise – adaptations that protect the beach, Promenade Trail and parking area from sea-level rise
- Accommodating a variety of water sports – from kite-boarding and wind surfing to stand up paddle boarding and swimming
- Green infrastructure – to address stormwater runoff, there are four bio-retention areas with native vegetation
- Improvements to the Bay Trail – 13-foot promenade, seamless connection to the western promenade, linear seat wall and more benches so visitors can watch kite-boarders soar or airplanes land
