A side effect of growing up in San Mateo County was having its parks leave a deep-rooted impression on me; so much so that I was eager and honored to take on this role at the San Mateo County Parks Foundation. This year, my goal has been to hike all the trails in the San Mateo County Parks system so I may know the parks intimately and be inspired by all they have to offer.

Flood Park is beloved by neighbors, many of whom walk it regularly, and by families who make good use of its extensive picnic areas. On weekends, the park is teeming with life- the smell of food will make anyone hungry as birthdays and reunions are celebrated.
