Master Plan Project Information
Central Park Entry off El Camino RealThe Parks and Recreation Department is updating the Master Plan for Central Park. The current adopted park master plan dates from 1982 and is no longer adequate to address the park’s current and future needs.

Project Status:
The Parks and Recreation Department is in the second public outreach phase of the Master Plan process.  This includes public workshops, online discussions at San Mateo Town Hall, and Commission and City Council meetings to review the 3 proposed alternative designs for the updated Master Plan.

Project Benefits:
The Master Plan will guide future improvements and redevelopment within Central Park that will seek to balance:

  • Its historic character;
  • Its use as a community gathering place;
  • Its strategic location adjacent to Downtown San Mateo; and
  • Its unique blend of both tranquil and active recreational spaces.

Central Park Music Series CrowdThe Master Plan update will explore the possible reuse or reconfiguration of existing on-site amenities within Central Park. However, several of the Park’s signature amenities, including the Japanese Tea Garden, the Great Lawn, the historic Kohl Pumphouse area and the Rose Garden; are intended to remain.

The public parking garage located beneath the tennis courts serves the overall downtown parking needs and the City expects, at a minimum, to replace the existing number of parking stalls in a configuration that best fits with the overall Master Plan objectives.
