“A little bit of everything”

Coyote Point Recreation Area
Ranked #2 of 27 things to do in San Mateo

Attraction details
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Nice place with a bit of everything, very close to San Francisco airport so you could see planes flying low circling to land. There are trails to walk, job or ride a bike or benches to sit and enjoy or a part of the bay to just enjoy the water.

Loads of trails for running or cycling, and great facilities. Plenty of picnic areas, rest areas, and play areas for the kids. Fantastic views.

This is a fairly large area with a great children's play area, a small animal habitat, a museum that is hands-on explaining tide pools, etc. It has many picnic areas and a pretty view of a boat harbor.

Coyote Point Recreation area is so close to major highways, yet it is so easy to feel far away from the busyness of the bay area there. We especially love the gently sloping trails that reveal these breath taking views of the bay from many angles, can even watch the planes land at SF Airport. Exciting to watch windsurfers nearby. Beautiful Veterans' Memorial is a surprise along one of the trails. Incredible natural history exhibits on display at the CuriOdyssey museum, great learning experiences for kids and adults alike. Huge playground for kids with castle and dragon themes. Also available here: swimming, boating and sailing. Be prepared for windy days, just in case.

Entrance fee to park. If you like natural beauty and an atmosphere to soak in relaxation without much effort, it's worth it to visit for an hour or all day.
