In light of the damage from winter storms, visitors are encouraged to exercise caution around large trees and bluff-tops. To stay on top of all park and trail closures, visit the San Mateo County Parks advisory page. In recent years, San Mateo County Parks has increased ways for dogs and their humans to access a variety of recreational opportunities. Here is the updated list of dog-friendly parks and trails available to you and your leashed canine companion. Please note that some of these areas represent a portion of the park. For example, at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, dogs are not allowed down by the tide pools, but can enjoy the Dardenelle Trail.
On the morning of January 31, 2019, the San Mateo County Parks Foundation met with County Arborist Dan Krug at Memorial County Park to send our GoPro up with the tree trimmers as they scaled a Douglas-fir. This was a rare opportunity to be able to share the view from the top of some of the tallest trees in the world. We hope you enjoy the video and our dialogue with Dan Krug. And special thanks to GoPro for sponsoring our camera!
