Memorial County Park Turns 90

Memorial Park 90 Memorial, the first San Mateo County Park, is about to turn 90-years-old. To commemorate this milestone, the San Mateo County Parks is planning a series of community events around the theme of Celebrate the Memories, Restore the Glory and Preserve for the Future. Activities include:

Take A Hike

Take A Hike encourages you to discover a County Park on the first Saturday each month, April through October. Participants learn about local parks and are encouraged to use the trails to stay active and healthy. This year’s schedule features one park that was not included in prior seasons.

Hikes begin at 9 a.m. and are between one to three miles long. Plan to spend at least an hour for this activity. Rangers and volunteers lead the hikes and provide information about park history and the local habitat. Bring water, dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes. We supply the beauty and fresh air courtesy of our San Mateo County parks. Most hikes begin at the park’s main parking lot. More info
