Picnic Area Online Rentals
Online Rental Requests
You may use our online picnic rental service to reserve your picnic area. Our picnic areas are very popular, so we recommend booking your picnic area as early as possible.
You can reserve a picnic area as early as the first work day of the year for that calendar year. You must be a City of San Mateo resident to reserve a picnic area.
