San Mateo City Parks and Recreation FoundationSan Mateo City Parks and Recreation Foundation
We are a private, non-profit 501 c 3 organization that works in collaboration with the City of San Mateo Parks and Recreation Department to support parks, recreation programs and capital projects that can be enjoyed by all San Mateo residents.

We believe that parks play a vital role in creating a healthy and vibrant community by:

  • Providing every child a safe and enjoyable place to play
  • Making our neighborhoods attractive and livable
  • Providing access to the serenity and inspiration of nature; and
  • Bringing people together to create memories that last a lifetime
