Shoreline Park is one of San Mateo’s newest parks – comprised of two parts – Ryder Park and Seal Point Park – it offers an abundance of open space and scenic views of the San Francisco Bay.
Seal Point Park
This park has a three acre off-leash dog park and many walking and biking paths that wander through natural and restored habitats. Keep your eyes open when on the trails because Seal Point Park is home to many types of native wildlife. The park also has a natural stairway as well as kayak and wind-surf launch areas. Come in the Spring and take a natural history class taught by our Park Rangers
Ryder Park & Aquatic Playground
Our renovated water feature and creative play areas make Ryder Park a perfect outing for the family. **
The water play area is open seven days a week from May 25 – October 1, 11am – 4pm. The park also has beautiful pathways landscaped with native vegetation – perfect for native gardening ideas in your own backyard. Ryder Park also has a barbeque and picnic area. It is a popular spot, so if you are planning an event, be sure to reserve your picnic area
**In compliance with State Water Board directives for water conservation, this feature will be shut off on August 1st for the remainder of this season.
