And be stronger for it.
San Mateo County Parks made the difficult decision to close all 23 parks effective Friday, March 27. The action came following weeks of unprecedented park visitation and disregard for the “Shelter in Place” and Social Distancing orders issued by the San Mateo County Health Officer. Anyone observed in parks by staff will be asked to leave.
