The San Mateo County Parks Foundation
Together, we can improve life for all San Mateo residents by expanding access to the natural beauty, rich culture and history, and the educational and recreational opportunities offered by San Mateo's County Parks.
The San Mateo County Parks Foundation inspires people to care for, learn about and enjoy our parks.
Unlike neighboring counties, San Mateo County does not have a dedicated funding source to provide for county park improvements and outdoor recreational programming. So, in 1998, the San Mateo County Parks Foundation was established to provide additional financial support for the recreational, environmental and educational programs and projects of the San Mateo County Department of Parks.
