Great view

Coyote Point in San Mateo, next to Airport. Great place for a walk, run, bike ride or if you enjoy watching the planes landing and taking off, perfect place!

Have always loved this place, had BBQ here with a group of friends. There are short trails in the park and also grassy area where you can play football or volleyball. For younger kids, you can take them to the park outside.

Loved the park. So peaceful. The trails are amazing. Beautiful views from the trails. Could easily spend a day here roaming the trails. A nice alternative to busy San Francisco.

Coyote Point has something for everyone: beach, tide pools, marsh, hiking, museum, multiple playgrounds and picnic areas, watersports, golf, harbor and even a gun range. In fact, the gun range is the only thing that interrupts the peacefulness of this place. It's where the cops train, and while I fully support that, if you're close to the range when SWAT... More

Fun place to come to relax and enjoy the views of SF, the bay and the planes landing at SFO. There is a beach and marina are on the back road. I used to bring my kids here to the play area close to the marina. Check out the museum too. Kids love this place.

Went there today with the kids. The facilities were clean and well kept. Although the water was too choppy to jump in my kids spent some quality time at the playground. The center didn't have any signs for the swimming area. Parking is one way and is kind of weird. Be prepared to drive around a bit (without a map)... More

Surprised to see only 115 reviews on Trip Advisor. It should be in thousands. Nice place to hangout. Inhale the oxygen as much as you can. Nice view of wind surfing and airplanes landing and taking off. A must visit place.
