S’mores! Beer! Hammocks! Kicking off summer in style with Coyote Nights at Coyote Point

Our inaugural Coyote Nights summer social took place last Thursday evening at the Captain’s House at Coyote Point. Thanks to all who came and made the first evening a memorable event! The San Mateo County Parks Foundation is hosting five more of these summer evening socials with our event partner, REI. Our goal: to connect more people to the parks

Are you new to San Mateo County, or curious about the parks? Are you interested in connecting with other park lovers? Or do you just want to enjoy a cold beer in our beautiful park by the bay, Coyote Point? If you said yes to any of this, then join us on Thursday, July 6 at 6pm for our next social! Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company will be pouring their handcrafted beers

RSVP for July 6!

REI set the scene- a cool outdoor lounge complete with music, hammocks, DIY trail mix, a fire pit for making s’mores and a few ‘trailheads’ that offered additional information on how to make the most of your park outing adventure. Here are some of the highlights:
